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.

Solstice Greetings!

Dear Friends of DolphinSmile Studio and the Sacred Heart Cafe,
Wishing you the fullness of summer's promise on the longest day of the year! I'm writing to share the some wonderful news: my husband Bruce and I have purchased a charming adobe home in the Land of Enchantment, near Taos, above the Rio Grande. It is our retirement dream come true, and we plan to move around August 1.
Our Tierra Nueva home is for sale and we are actively looking for a buyer, or if need be, someone to lease our home. For those of you who have been my loyal customers at my Open Studio Tours for eight years, you are familiar with Tierra Nueva's amazing resources. The Gudrun Hus where I held four of my studio tours is an art/yoga/dance studio available for use of the residents. We live in the midst of an organic avocado orchard, in walking distance to the Rutiz Family Farm next to Halcyon. Here is a description of our home's listing and more information about living in community at Tierra Nueva Home for Sale.
If you know of someone who may be interested in purchasing or leasing our home please forward this link to them. Thank you so much!
I have transitioned my business to become more internet based in the past few years, with my shop at 1000 Markets and an active FaceBook page where I post new listings and photos of my art.
I promise to stay in touch with you with quarterly emails like this one, on the Solstices and Equinoxes. And please remember that I would love to hear from you via email or FaceBook (link below).
My days are filled with time in my Halcyon pottery studio, finishing up the last of my pottery orders. I am still heart-deep in my love affair with mica clay from New Mexico, as you can see from my shop photos. My lastest work includes teapots, teabowls and "Blessing Bread Bowls" for baking bread.
All the blessings of summer to you: long, warm days of bright light, time with family and friends, vacation adventures and sitting on the porch under the stars! And once again, my deep gratitude for all of your generous support for me as I walk my artist's path,
warmly, PattyMara

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."
