"ARROYO"

A dry channel through which water flows intermittently and irregularly. Kind of like this blog.

My art is an infectious need for me, sometimes a burden but most often a blessing.

This blog is about me and my obsessions, my loves, my need to create and my need of JUNK. I'm addicted to thrift stores, estate sales, flea markets and all roads leading off the beaten track to discover that perfect piece of junk. I recycle old license plates, old shovels, wheelbarrows, saw blades and anything else that's funky using my hand held plasma cutter. I love working with steel, sculpting, photography, watercolor painting, stained glass, and turning everyday utilitarian objects into art. Junked cars ~ I will always veer off the path to search out the beautiful wrecked Arroyo JunKers throughout Arizona, New Mexico and anywhere else the road may lead. When I'm not searching for those JunKers

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY


You’d think that people would have had enough of silly love songs,
But I look around me and see it isn’t so.
Some people wanna fill the world with silly love songs.
And what’s wrong with that?
I’d like to know, cause here I go again
I love you I love you,
I love you I love you!

Hi Susie,
Love your work and ruminations, all of it. My husband and I live in the house your mom grew up in in Pojoaque and are both artists (I had sent her a newsletter yesterday and she wrote back and included stuff about you and a link) - wish I had saved my dad's old wheelbarrow for you to work on! Your mom bought a rose painting from me a few years ago. Now I do abstracts and make figurative bronzes.Check us out too

Takin' the back road from Greer to Morenci was gorgeous. This was waiting at the end.
