​“When I am working in the studio, there are times that I capture a certain mood or trigger a memory of places I have visited or imagined”. 


I am a mixed media artist using resin-steel-wood and light in creating my work. I embed chemical powders layers and found objects and healing soil from Mission Chimayo, Taos. The objects bend the light traveling through the translucent layers, while the chemical layers absorb light energy and re-emits a visible light encased in resin. 

​Larry and Sandra Ortega are leading an “art” movement in Sunnyslope, and have organized, curated and marketing the Sunnyslope Open Studio Tour and Sunnyslope Plein Air Fest. A third festival is in the works.
