Artist Statement:

I was selected as the Artist in Residence for the Friends of the Organ Mountains Desert Peaks National Monument (OMDPNM) program for September 2016.  During my residency, I created paintings of various sizes done in oil, acrylic, and mixed media of landscapes of different parts of the monument and vegetation located within the monument.  The works displayed were created or a result of my residency with the OMDPNM.  I wanted to create art that will capture the eyes of my viewers, more importantly show the beauty of the Organ Mountains Desert Peaks National Monument to viewers. The goal of my art is to show the beauty of the monument and share awareness to preserve the monument’s historical value, so that generations from now the monument will still be as beautiful as today because of the part we can play in helping to preserving it.
