note from Joan
I have lived in Placitas, New Mexico since 1988. As an artist, New Mexico provides me with so many things that I need to nourish my soul: beauty, history, cultural diversity, wildlife, wilderness, quiet, wide open spaces, ever changing light, blue skies and amazing sunsets. Even before I moved here from North Carolina, I knew that New Mexico was my home. I still marvel at seeing several thunderstorms in the distance, but never getting rain where I am.
