Gouache is opaque watercolor. Gouche holds its intense color and opaque characteristics throughout the painting process.
My style of painting is influenced by the Yunnan school of "heavy color," using gouache on rice paper, and includes silver, gold or copper metallic gouache to outline and highlight the images. The finished paintings are "floated" to accentuate the imagery and emotion of the paintings.

My pastel paintings are created in both soft and oil pastels. By using my hands, brushes, color shapers, or knives, I created images that imbuew a sense of beauty, reality, and timelessness. Working from photographs I take of my surroundings, the paintings relfect the beauty and wonder of the world around us.
Each layer of color adds a richness and depth to the paintings, creating almost a magical world of its own for you to discover.

No room on your walls? that's ok – let's take the art outside!
Ceramic tiles are hand-built artwork based on one of my paintings or a commissioned piece of your concept. We will mount them onto a plywood base that is simply hung on an outside wall or fence, or your local tile contractor can permanently mount the tiles to any exterior surface.
Each of the tiles is an original piece of art and is produced, glazed and fired in our home studios in New Mexico.
Paintings that have sold may also be available in exclusive editions Giclées.
A giclée is a technological advancement in printmaking. A high resolution digital scans is created, then printed with archival quality inks onto heavy watercolor paper. This process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction. The quality of the giclée rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums and galleries.
Only exclusive limited editions of 50, each hand numbered and signed, are printed.
