Artist Statement

The Southern Sangre de Cristo Mountains have become such a home away from home for me. As I explore and experience the vibrant colors and textures found there, the bark, lichen, pine cones and needles emerge as fibers of rich forest tapestry. I select materials with inherent resiliency. My desire for this body of work is to bring the experience of the forest into the spaces where people live and work. These are my Nature Tapestries.
