ARTISTS STATEMENT

CLICK SLIDESHOW TO SEE MY WORK. I believe by definition I've become a "LANDSCAPE EXPRESSIONIST." My early childhood experiences were in those MASSIVE FLOWERBEDS that Denver Parks & Rec designed and maintained: GIGANTIC, ARTISTIC, MASSIVE FLOWER GARDENS! (with a childs-eye view in bright sunlight).

I was fortunate enough to have four years of private group art lessons during my second marriage in Lakewood, Colorado when my two sons were in grade school. MS. Jean Grout studied under Anjelo di Benedetto (1913 - 1992) She taught us extensive design principles, color theory and art history which I believe were equal to or exceeded college level courses. She also taught us to SEE "SPACE THROUGH PATTERNS" or "PATTERNS THROUGH SPACE" which broke my FLAT SPACE style I began at age sixteen. LUCKY, LUCKY me.

My boring resume includes 22 juried, group art shows in Colorado, (then 3 in Raton,NM when I moved in 2018 from Colorado to New Mexico & then moved to BELEN, NM for 3 years & 3 months), 4 'solo' one-woman shows in Denver, CO, 16 months in an Arts Center in Pueblo, CO and 14 juried online art shows. Google still mentions that I'm either a Pueblo, Colorado OR a New Mexico artist even though I left Colorado for New Mexico, October 2018 and THEN I MOVED TO EAST-CENTRAL ARIZONA IN APRIL 2022. It's called the "Tri-City" area of Miami/Claypool/Globe, Arizona (but it's not working out with any gallery interest so I'm moving out of state again).

I refuse to join any of those ONLINE REPUTATION PROTECTION money-making websites so if you read I'm a felon or drug addict, I can sue them for libel....

Thank you for visiting my website!
