|About the Artist
From a very young age I have had a special affinity for animals. As the daughter of a veterinarian, I have grown to love and appreciate the creatures that enrich our lives. After graduating from the University of New Mexico with a BAFA in Studio Arts, I began my career as an oil painter. I frequently paint horses, landscapes, and wildlife. However, I have found much more fulfillment as a mixed media artist in recent years. My unique beaded skulls draw influence from patterns found among the world's indigenous cultures, but as a native of the Southwest, I am particularly inspired by Native American pottery and textiles. Through my artwork, I seek to honor the animals whose skulls I use, as well as the cultural influences of my home.
