I trekked the Camino de Santiago in Northwestern Spain in 2009, and came back an artist. After years of sitting behind a computer as a graphic designer, I figure if I can walk across a country, I can paint across a canvas. Both are slow, and that’s ok with me.

I'm inspired by the idea that "thoughts become things." My intention is to think positive thoughts and paint symbols of a higher reality.

Based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico, my North Valley studio is an old barn with a deck on two sides facing the bosque trails. I love to work outside, and be immersed in nature. Natural light is the best, and so is fresh air.

My work can be found at Bookworks, Duran Central Pharmacy, La Montanita Co-op, Plaza Gifts in Old Town, El Patio, Tamaya Gallery in Bernalillo, and at Ecco Espresso and Gelato in Santa Fe. 

In the summer I showcase original canvas paintings at Downtown Growers Market and the Railyard Market, in addition to festivals and arts and craft fairs.

Thank you so much to all who keep the arts alive. Much love to you.
