“Life is Full of Inspiration”
As an artist I am constantly moving in and out of fluctuating and reverberating patterns, layers, and hidden multiple images. I wish to capture the beauty and elegance within this alchemical dance of form, stimulated by the natural world and the figure. Infused in my studies is the appreciation for the diversity of visual languages deeply inspired by the old masters, my fellow visionary artists, and my art degree journey. I am drawn to the organic forms in nature and anatomy; and the soft subtle curves found in golden ratio proportions and sacred geometry. My artwork aims for a mystical experience that mends a breach with spirit and inner visions, distilling my integrative philosophical conceptions. To strike the heart of what I do, I find beauty in the mythical figurative; and finding meaningful ways to condense transcendental glimpses into crystallized theophanies, with undulating waves of light, color, and form. My artwork is a therapeutic practice for my soul, and I find creativity essential for well-being.

Nancy is a photographer and dimensional artist. A photo tells a story, but by adding items that support that image, it elevates the piece making a more powerful statement. She may use items from nature like rocks, adobe, fur, wood, or feathers. Fabric, dyes, paints, screen, or hand cast paper may also be used. It all depends on what will embellish the piece and enhance the story.

Santa Fe-based world traveler, Michael Garfield, is our featured artist of the month, displaying the works from live paintings he completed in past festivals and events. His experience as a scientific illustrator transfers onto canvas in a dance of left-right brain entanglement. His displayed pieces shift from modern to extinct and micro to macro creatures taking life in unpredictable settings, crafted with vibrant colors and accompanied by shapes, which flow like the breath. Each piece portrays movement through geometrical patterns, leaving the stories up to the viewer’s imagination, an inspiration for pre and post-floats.
