I paint in New Mexico colors- totally loving my life in this state of beauty all around me. I grew up in Southern California, but I am a daughter of a New Mexican Father.
My Padilla/ Baca Heritage has greatly influenced my art. When I was small, I used to love colors and art. I made my first piece of art at a summer class in Buena Park, California. The teacher liked my piece, and said it was very good. Since then, I have been off and on making my kind of art. I now do printmaking classes and I am currently making engraved metal plates, then I print them. My series will be the 'Saints of New Mexico' at Argos Print Studio in Santa Fe. I also love painting my abstracts, that is my way to express myself. I have to paint. Just like a cook has to be in the kitchen, I have to create with brush and paints.
