I seek to share interesting scenes or moments or points of view, sometimes beautiful, sometimes not. I frequently process my images on a computer to make them better focus on my intended subject or goal of the photograph. I try to bring out what I saw in my mind's eye when I took the picture.

Member Statement/Information

My art reflects a dance between the two sides of my brain. One moment I am in the left side of my brain and accuracy and realism is key. The next moment I am in the right side where creativity and spontaneity abound. Each of my paintings has a special place in my heart and they all have a purpose.

Member Statement/Information

I work wet into wet, layering thicker pigment over thinner pigment. This becomes a journey with unpredictable detours and outcomes which must be resolved along the way. Once I begin, I work spontaneously and intuitively, allowing the painting itself to lead me to the next stroke.

Jennifer’s fabric landscapes incorporate beading, embroidery and weaving. She says, “The endless choices of patterns, colors, textures, and combinations of shapes and design is a challenge I look forward to for each fiber art wall hanging.”

Member Statement/Information

I am always pushing the limits of my chosen medium. I started weaving as a personal expression of color, texture, and space. I want to blur the line between craft and art. Inspiration is only constant in its changes. Nature, travel history and technology all influence what turns into fabric.

Member Statement/Information

The quiet repetition of daily activities, the slight changes in patterns, textures and colors mark the day, the activity, the object, as different today than it was yesterday. Small changes make the world move forward. Weaving, knitting, crocheting, coiling…opening a world of change and beauty.

Summers and vacations always took me to the Land of Enchantment and Mesa Verde. Needless to say, that is mainly my subject matter, especially Santa Fe architecture. With mediums that include pencil, oils, combo pencil and pastel and some clay, I truly like pencil drawing most.

With my oil paintings, I seek to stimulate a seed in the viewer, an invitation to co-create the experience of the painting according to the wealth of life, thought and perception he or she brings to the viewing.
