What are your favorite artistic mediums?

I love to work with clay, acrylics, watercolors, pencils, and found art! Photography is also a passion, but I find that Photo-shopping a picture to look like a water color is more fun than the photo itself. My friends tell me that I should have been a kindergarten teacher instead of a Park Ranger as I am constantly crafting from recycled materials. :)

Did you join this group primarily to grow as an artist and/or promote your work? Or as a social outlet to meet other artists and creative minded folks?

I would love for artists and artistic minded folks to join us at El Malpais NCA, on the second Sunday of the month for some fresh air, and inspiration. You don't need to be a plain-aire artist to attend. All are welcome and we are a positive, non judgmental group.


Hi, I'm a Park Ranger with the BLM at El Malpais National Conservation Area. You are all invited to come and explore our beautiful area! Keep your Sundays open for homestead hikes, wilderness adventures, and artistic endeavors on your public lands.
