I am a self-taught artist who has also studied at McNay Art Institute, The Southwest Craft Center, the University of New Mexico and the University of Louisville.
I have made stain glass, pottery, wood and stone jewelry, calligraphy, folk art and painting. I created a line of wooden jewelry with over 100 designs made into pins, earrings and bolo ties. In addition to crafting jewelry in wood I also work with bone, stone, shell and antler. My jewelry is available and I have written How to Make Southwest Jewelry in Wood. I illustrated several books including Sometimes Life Ain’t Sweet, You Know and I took photographs for Shaker Ghosts, Strange and Wonderful Things, and Ghosts, Spirits and Angels.
