culture took her to New Mexico, where she studied and lived for a decade. Although her work trends toward a modern style, the viewer can sometimes catch a glimpse of the southwestern influence, which shows up in rich textures
and simple forms. Her art is considered to be non-representational, which means the painting's meaning is open for interpretation by the viewer. Mary Calkins

accents with clean lines and rich colors.
