I paint silk, throw pots and collage poetry books & cards in my enchanted adobe studio in Pilar, New Mexico.

At the Sacred Heart Cafe, I make art to feed the hungry heart. Open all night, a warm place to wander and browse, savor and enjoy.

New Kiln load of Calavera Plates

I've done three firings this week, and am relieved that all four of the new square plates emerged from the fire in perfect condition. These two calaveras (skeletons) plates were handpainted, inspired by José Guadalupe Posada, a Mexican engraver and illustrater, 1862-1913. They measure 11 inches square.

The Value of Play in Creativity

"The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves."
