2019 has continued to be a year of exploration into new media and art forms. I took a leap of discovery into art book making. Making papers of all sorts, felted, tissue layers incorporating textile bits was my chief focus for several months. Captivated by the endless possibilities using the gelliplate making art papers to collage into books arts continues to excite.

My first solo art show in October at the Corrales Art Center was a highlight. We hung fourteen pieces and showed some of my Art Books in the gallery.

Two paintings were in the New Mexico State Fair Fine Art show. As a result one of the two has sold.

This year I was Chairperson for The Rio Grand Art Association Encantada Art Show. Took second place ribbon for a “small painting”.

The Corrales Studio Tour was a first this year also and this stepped up to volunteer of the board as Volunteer Coordinator.

Work at the Gallery Abq, Albuquerque in new role Secretary to Board of Directors also new. Paintings are selling at the gallery and my art books were juried in as well.

On the horizon for 2020 upcoming show, “On the Rise” with the New Mexico Cancer Center, Albuquerque. This is going to be a big show and one I look forward to in May, 2020.
