Taos Dreams

Sitting on my Grandma’s couch, with her wrinkly hand in mine, might have been the first time I realized how important old people were to me. I have had many amazing experiences with elders since then and I am so grateful for the love wisdom and courage they shared with me. Lillian Romero of the Taos Pueblo spent her life dedicated to helping elders. She didn’t just do the little things she went big.

Hiking in the beautiful rolling hills of Boulder’s has become a true love of mine. Like any passion or pastime, one develops favorite spots that draw you back again and again. It seems no matter how much something may seem familiar, and how many times you walk a path, there is always something you see that was previously unnoticed.

There was something so majestic and...

Portraits are Magical | Portrait Paintings | Portrait commissions Paintings Portraits. My art does not just repeat the obvious but it explores the unknown, the unseen and the magic. In portrait painting I think it is important to search for the essence of my sitter, for the deep and beautiful person.
