I received both my Bachelor’s degree in fine art and my Master degree in education from the University of New Mexico. I am almost a New Mexico native, having lived in the state for seventy years. I was drawn to art making in kindergarten and never stopped my love for wanting to be an artist. I was drawn to the teaching profession to be involved with art making and art makers. For twenty-five years I taught in the APS system and for eight years I was an instructor in the department of Art Education at UNM. I chose collage as a means of expression because the process of uniting colors and shapes with lines is completely satisfying and allows for a great deal of exploration. I am looking forward to many more years of discovery which the medium of collage provides.


Artist statement

Working in collage allows the artist to bring together disparate images in a cohesive manner, a work of wholeness, a message. Some of my work is abstract and some is abstracted figurative collage. The combining of graphic images, colors and texture is an important part of my work. While these images might be viewed as decorative, each carries a message, one created by and unique to the artist and another message to the viewer.
