Baja Inspirations Collection

During my sixteen years living in the high desert of New Mexico, I vanished in winter down to the warmth of the Baja in Mexico where my Baja Inspirations were fanned. My favorite spot was the little fishing village of Todos Santos which really captured my heart. I also spent time in Sayulita across the [...]

Winter Magpies

Acrylic on paper, 10"x14" When I lived in Taos, the winter magpies would appear and fill this big, bare tree out the living room window. I would sit by the fire, and watch them swoop and dive and spin and soar in and out and around the tree for hours. It was an acrobatic show [...]

Flock over the Field

Acrylic on paper, 9"x12" I don't know what it is about walking in the autumn countryside, and seeing a flock over the field. Maybe it is because the birds are getting ready to leave, and migrate south for the winter. Maybe it's because they have a message. I read once that the birds are the [...]

Tree of Life

The concept of a tree of life  has been widely used throughout world mythology, religion, philosophy and even science, and the motif is common to all of these. From a mystical perspective it refers to the interconnection of all life on this planet. Since the term is also known as the sacred tree, I put birds [...]

Ahhhhh, the Baja palms assured me it was time for some much needed rest and relaxation, along with some fresh, new Baja inspirations for [...]

Let it Reign

The magical jungles and rain forests of the world are teeming with amazing life. There are thousands of plant, flower and animal species. It is so important that we protect and preserve all the natural bounty found in the rain forests before it's too late. We are downright stupid if we continue to destroy these [...]

Harvest Song

This design didn't take long to manifest after I had arrived in New Mexico. I was overwhelmed with all the unfamiliar, new designs and artifacts and objects native to this land. The figures in this are inspired from the Kokopelli kachinas that play the flute for both prosperity and fertility. Harvest Song has two Kokopelli [...]

Dove Love

My good friend, Rosario, once gave me a beautiful wooden carving with two white doves on it. I loved it so much I had to do a design. My dove love design has two white doves sharing a tree branch under the sun against a cobalt blue backdrop with an orange border and decorative lime [...]

Petroglyphs

One of the best activities in New Mexico is hiking to all the rock outcroppings where petroglyphs are known to exist. It's a treat when you find the real deal. I love petroglyphs because it makes me feel so connected to these early artists who were compelled to express their visions. Here are my petroglyph [...]
