What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for more than twenty years. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

When Modern Was Contemporary

 Girl on a Terrace Richard Diebenkorn

When I originally made my plans for my trek to New Mexico, it didn't include stopping in Albuquerque. My Mom was supposed to fly into Los Angeles and then drive with me to Santa Fe and Taos but the weather had other plans. So, we quickly made plans for me to pick her up in Albuquerque. 

Albuquerque! Richard Diebenkorn popped into my head. I wondered if any of the museums had his work on display and I was in luck! The Albuquerque Museum has an exhibit up right now through the end of December called When Modern Was ContemporarySelections from the Roy R. Neuberger Collection.
I had about a half an hour at the museum and I enjoyed every minute. If you are in New Mexico, it's well worth a trek. It's fascinating to see how contemporary the artwork being done in the 1950's was via this collection. I went specifically for the Diebenkorn and was left pleasantly surprised by the collection:

The Albuquerque Museum is located at 2000 Mountain Road NW. More information can be found here.
