We would like top thank our cover artist, Lynn Garlick of Taos for her beautiful retablo.
I have lived and painted in Taos, New Mexico since 1976. I was originally trained as a landscape and portrait painter. Over the years I have worked in many different mediums, many styles and within the framework of many different schools of thought on art. Regardless of the style, medium, or school, the one thing that has remained constant is my emotional response to the beauty I see around me.
I started painting retablos in 1991. I was inspired by the simplicity and devotion with which these icons are painted. They sold well and started demanding more and more time from me. They became, for me, a form of prayer for help, healing and right thought. I ask for love and kindness to show in them because to me it is through kindness that we heal ourselves, our family, our friends and the world. My hope is that this kindness comes through the image of the saint.
