If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

 About this image:

Although I had visited New Mexico on press trips, I felt compelled to visit on my own – my own timetable and the more relaxed travel style I prefer. I wanted to enjoy the visual arts in Taos and Santa Fe but not the crowds and high prices. I found Dixon, located between Taos and Santa Fe. It was an easy drive to either town WITH the relaxing atmosphere of small town life and  casual interactions with the artists in the community at their galleries and studios.

 Wishing you safe and pleasant travels – ALWAYS!

        As a travel writer it is my responsibility to select the best places, events, and experiences to present to you. Most travel has been on my own though some has occurred on sponsored press trips. Travel listings here will be more informal than my published articles.
