I have lived and traveled

extensively in Bolivia where

many ancient indigenous

traditions continue to be

practiced by the Aymara,

Guarani, and Quechua peoples. I

first visited Bolivia as a Peace

Corps volunteer. My experience

of Bolivian culture and also of

wandering through mountains

that glow richly with earth colors

has inspired my art. In my

former work at the Children’s

Museum in Sucre, Bolivia and as

a current member of the

Bolivian Rock Art Society

(SIARB) I have come under the

spell of a treasure of prehistoric

images, both painted and

engraved, that speak intuitively

of a magic reality of sun, stars,

gods, intertwined with an

everyday reality of harvest,

hunting, and fertility.
