About Me

Albuquerque, NM, United States
I have been weaving Contemporay Fine Art Tapestries for over 20 years, raising a family in the lovely Southwest. I want to show process which usually gets a back seat to product and share the trials and tribulations as well as the joy and excitement of the creation of art out of a bunch of strings. How remarkable!

Happy Year of the Snake!

I do like Chinese New Year so much better than the January first one. This one is farther from the holidays, and inventory at the end of the year. And No Pressure , you can just choose to celebrate it however you want.
The Year of the Snake is starting out grand for me , as my solo show at the Weyrich Gallery here in Albuquerque opened on the first of February. Called  "Feng Shui Plus " it included both my Feng shui Series and my "Universal Language Series" ( and a few of my Architectonic and Fractured Square Series thrown in for more plus!)
It was nicely attended and had a wonderful article come out in the Albuquerque Journal's front page of the Art Section! From there we sold one before the opening and 6 more so far!
I was just starting to think that if people weren't going to buy these soon I couldn't afford to make them any more so Whew!
I am so happy with this gallery which will continue to carry my tapestries!
 My wonderful gallery in Madrid NM also came through and sold my "Aquamarine Panorama" from the fractured square series. So , all in all quite a good start.
I have begun work on the 2cd in the REDUCTION SERIES, which is about, among other things, a return to center from complicated patterning toward the simpler as well as "reducing" all the baskets of different bits of color from all the other pieces I have done for all these solo shows.
So now it's back to the loom!
