I live in the high mountains of Taos, New Mexico, a wild and open place,
full of vast sky and endless vistas. When I am not climbing mountains
or writing, I am beading. In the winter months, I live in Bali. There I
volunteer at a free clinic, and bead in a small studio with my friend
Wayan Candra, a gifted young artist. The green, lush fecundity of Bali
is the perfect balance to the harsh arid southwest. My work is deeply
influenced by my environment, and the peoples and cultures I live with.
