Saguaro cactus, bougainvillea, grapefruit trees and art museums! Oh my! We aren't in Cheyenne anymore. In fact Dave and I arrived in Phoenix on Monday to relax and enjoy some of the sights and museums this area has to offer. Our first stop was the Heard Museum whose focus is American Indian and Southwestern art. We saw a fabulous exhibit of Maria Martinez's pottery and work by a contemporary artist, Brenda Mallory. She uses discarded objects to create her pieces and express her voice, ( I can relate). We have been to the Desert Botanical Garden twice already. It's an amazing place with al ..read more

"In 2006, Desert Caballeros Western Museum embraced a revolutionary idea: an annual exhibition showcasing the brightest contemporary female artists working in the Western genre. In the male-dominated world of Western Art, Cowgirl Up! turned the spotlight squarely on women’s voices and perspectives, serving up a new, deeper understanding of the American West. " * I am thrilled to be one of the invitees to the 2024 exhibition! The Desert Caballeros Western Museum is located in Wickenburg Az. Dave and I will be hopping in our Tesla in mid March to drive my artwork to the museum. We th ..read more

8:00pm Friday evening October 6th... and the Cheyenne First Friday Artwalk just finished. We put away the reception food, closed our gallery door and hopped in the Tesla. Packed in the back was just one piece of art. If you're following us on our You Tube channel, Two Artists in a Tesla, you know that the Tesla and my packing skills are capable of getting 40 pieces of art in that car. This time just one very special piece of art was safely resting in the back of the car. At 58" x 33" it did take up a lot of space! After 106 hours I had finally completed my commission and it was time to dr ..read more

 I loved the excitement of going away for my sophomore year of college at Seattle Pacific College. My roommate, Cindy and I traveled to many places in and around Seattle but I never made it to San Juan Island. All these years later, I am vicariously discovering the island and it's iconic Lime Kiln Lighthouse thanks to a piece commissioned by Dianne Root. Dianne and her family chose an image of San Juan Island State Park, a place that holds  sweet memories for her family and her parents, Mary Ann and Andy McDonnell.  It's the largest piece I have worked on to date.

The Inspiration of Place

 ​I am an East coaster gone West. I grew up in Buffalo NY, spent some time in the deep South, then moved to Atlanta and finally Cheyenne Wyoming. I traveled West with artistic angst. What would my voice in the West be? I’d been working with natural materials and themes unique to the South. I had no feeling or aptitude for the figure or animals so bison and cowboys were out. What was left? The landscape! Driving towards Cheyenne that first November, I struggled to describe what I was seeing. Few trees, brown hills, vast horizons and giant skies. What was this foreign country? The phrase ..read more
