Bio

BJ grew up on the East Coast, then spent many years in California, eventually ending up in New Mexico. As a child she won awards for her pottery then turned to painting as a teenager. BJ studied technique in oils and acrylics but preferred the quick-drying nature of acrylics as she continued to perfect her skills. Her creative grandmother taught her to crochet at age eleven, a craft she has returned to as an adult. BJ continued her art studies and self-education through the years. Art has been a lifelong passion. BJ has exhibited in Albuquerque and Taos, and been a favorite in the Questa Art Tour since 2021.
