Join me at the Taos Artist Collective for an energetic and eclectic array of art from some of Northern New Mexico’s best artists.  See Gallery Director Greg Farah’s new space for FaraHNHeight Fine Art Gallery in Santa Fe on the Plaza.  And, be sure to visit Ash Clow’s shop, Ascension Crystals, in Old Town, Albuquerque.  My full array of paintings are on display and sale at each venue.  For 2023, my  newest venture is an abstract art collaborative along with Albuquerque artists, Janet Bothne and Bill Sabatini, to showcase and show abstract art for the 21st Century.  Follow us for shows to come.

JANUARY 2023

I am now a member of the Corrales Society of Artists in Corrales, NM.  We are looking forward to a big year in Corrales with the Studio Tour on May 6-7, 2023.  Come if you can.  We will be in our new studios in Corrales, and plan a major showcase of our work.  Corralessocietyofartists.org

Our abstract art group, the Triple-Take Art Group, including Janet Bothne, Bill Sabatini and myself have three major shows planned for 2023. The year begins with a show at the N4TH Art Center on Fourth Street, NW in Albuquerque, NM on March 1, 2023, with a formal Opening Night on March 3, 2023.

I am now showing and selling my paintings through three galleries:
