THE FACTS


 











I AM A TRUE TEXAN...
IF YOU HAVE SEEN MY WORK IN PERSON, OR KNOW ME... THERE  IS NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT. I AM A NATIVE OF SAN ANTONIO, AND HAVE LOCAL ANCESTERAL INDIAN BLOOD RUNNING THROUGH MY VIENS. 

EDUCATION & LIFE
I GRADUATED WITH THE 7 YEAR PLAN...3 YEARS OF ART AND 4 YEARS OF ARCHITECTURE. FOR OVER 20 YEARS I HAVE BEEN A PROFESSIONAL DESIGNER & ARTIST. I DESIGN & BUILD CUSTOM HOMES WITH MY HUSBAND OF 23 YEARS. I AM FORTUNATE THAT I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ALSO PURSUE MY PASSION FOR ART. DESIGNING A HOME IS CREATIVE, BUT I AM IMPLEMENTING SOMEONE ELSE'S VISION. AS AN ARTIST THAT ALL GOES BYE BYE!

MY STYLE 
MY ARCHITECTURE & ART WORLDS HAVE COLLIDED, AND MORPHED INTO A UNIQUE NICHE THAT IS MY CLEARLY MY DOMAIN. MY STYLE IS VIBRANT COLORS, AND SIMPLE COMPOSITIONS WITH A TEXAS TWANG.

INFLUENCES
ARCHITECTURAL MAGAZINES WERE ALWAYS MY SOURCE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND ART OF EVERY MEDIUM POSSIBLE. I WAS OBSESSED WITH THE ART ON THOSE PAGES, PUBLIC ART, SCULPTURE, PAINTINGS, LANDSCAPE ART. AS A CHILD OF THE 60'S, THIS WAS MY INTERNET.

I'M AN ONLY CHILD, AND I WAS ABOUT 8 WHEN WE TOOK A VACTION TO YELLOW STONE PARK. A TEDIOUS TRIP FOR ANY KID, BUT NOT FOR ONE THAT IS CONSUMED WITH CREATING. WHEN WE WERE ALMOST AT OUR DESTINATION, I FINALLY ANNOUNCED TO MY PARENTS WHAT I HAD BEEN CREATING FOR SEVERAL DAYS IN THAT BACKSEAT ALL ALONE.
 
I COULD'NT TELL YOU WHY I MADE THIS, BUT I KNOW I SAW IT ON TV MANY TIMES. I HAD RECREATED LIBERACE'S PIANO AND CANDELABRA IN EXCRUTIATING DETAIL. NEEDLESS TO SAY MY PARENTS WERE STUNNED! IF YOU DONT KNOW ABOUT LIBERACE, LOOK HIM UP ON THE INTERNET. HE WAS AN AMAZING FLAMBOUYANT PIANIST IN VEGAS, AND HE HAD A PIANO RING THAT OPENED UP SO YOU COULD SEE THE INTERIOR STRUCTURE.

THE ART
MY ARTWORK CAN BE A VARIETY OF MIXED MEDIUMS, AND TAKES MANY DIFFERENT FORMS.
I USE HAND DYED BATIKS IN THE PLACE OF PAINTS. MOST OF THE BATIK I USE IS FROM INDONESIA. IN 2009 INDONESIAN BATIKS RECIEVED AN UNESCO DESIGNATION. THESE BEAUTIFUL FABRICS ARE ARTWORKS ALL ON THIER ON. WITH THE INTERNET I HAVE ACCESS TO THESE ONE OF A KIND TREASURES FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.

MY RECENT MIXTURE OF BATIKS & MODEL BULDING HAS OPENED UP A CAN OF WORMS IN MY BRAIN, AND POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS.

MY STUDIO
SEVERAL YEARS AGO I DESIGNED OUR NEW HOME / STUDIO / OFFICE. WE BUILT IT OUT OF CORRUGATED METAL AND STEEL. IT IS 3 STORIES TALL AND HAS SOME REALLY UNIQUE FEATURES. YOU CAN SEE PHOTOS OF MY HOME-STUDIO AT THE BOTTOM OF THE ART LIST.
 
IN CONCLUSION...
FINALLY BEING ABLE TO SAY THAT I AM A PROFESSIONAL ARTIST, TOOK MANY YEARS.
AND DONT FORGET THAT LITTLE THING CALLED A BFA. NOW THAT I AM COMFORTABLE IN THE GENRE, I REALIZE I HAVE BEEN AN ARTIST ALL ALONG.

I FIND MYSELF CONSTANTLY REINTERPRETING THE MEANING AND ROLE OF ART IN MY LIFE.
