February Featured Artists at Amapola Gallery
Amapola Gallery in Old Town Albuquerque is one of my great finds since coming to New Mexico. I’m delighted to be part of this terrific group. The gallery features two members each month and I’m a featured artist for February along with watercolor artist Carol Sparks. We’re having an opening reception at the gallery on February 2 from 4-7 pm, but you are welcome to come by earlier, too. The address is 205 Romero Street, Albuquerque NM. Please join us to see our work and the work of the other local artists who are part of Amapola.
I believe that the creative process is a journey. My silver story started years ago with classes in stone cutting, silversmithing, and wire work. Unfortunately, other things intervened and I put my jewelry work aside for several years. Eventually I began working on jewelry designs again and about 5 years ago I moved to New Mexico from the east coast. I am so excited about being here – New Mexico is the most inspiring place to live and work.
I love spirals and I use them in a lot of my designs. A spiral is a compelling shape that can be found in the art of numerous cultures. Spirals are plentiful in natures, too. The spiral represents a spiritual journey to many people and I’ve adopted the spiral as a symbol of my creative journey.
Along with some new designs, I’m showing some retro look designs – bringing back some spiral styles from a few years ago
