Statement: “Moving to the Sonoran Desert sixteen years ago, I was impressed with the variety and sculptural presence of the plant life. The many different cacti species are visually intriguing with springtime bringing flowers and fruit to add to the feast for the eyes. Without tall trees to obstruct the view, the vastness of the skies and the breath of the landscape stretches to the distant horizon, the effect of atmosphere muting the colors. The Sonoran Desert is a remarkable change from the northeast where I was raised living under the ubiquitous canopy of tall, green, broad-leafed trees. Here, the greens sing in a multitude of shades and tints.  Combined with an array of subtle colors and their juxtapositions, I fell in love with living in Tucson and strive to depict it in my paintings and fiber art. Working with both paint and textiles, using my favorite colors, greens, oranges, and purples, I depicted three iconic desert plants, showing the Opuntia in its glorious full bloom.”
