The view from my studio toward Santa Fe--- its :10 drive by car



Santa Fe workshops are taught in my home studio in Santa Fe, NM. We are just :15 west of the plaza in spacious countryside, Santa Fe is a great town for easily looking at art.  Many artists live here and there are literally hundreds of art galleries in our art districts: The Plaza, Canyon Road, The Railyard. 

There is good hiking to be found in our nearby mountains: The Sangre De Christos and The Jemez. Trips to Taos, Abiquiu, Tent Rocks and Bandelier National Monuments, are popular if you have extra days to explore.


The summers here are nothing short of amazing, a fact I did not know when we moved here in 2012.  At 7000 ft, we don't get painfully hot. High 80's to low 90's mostly, and it is a very dry heat.  But the big secret is the summer monsoons which bring in the really huge clouds, lightning storms and the always welcome rain. Monsoon season is typically July thru September. Mornings are sunny and then clouds begin to stack around noon.  A quick afternoon rain, if we are lucky, followed by a glorious sunset.

The Albuquerque airport is an easy one hour drive away, or you can fly directly into Santa Fe from several cities. There are a lot of good airBnb choices for lodging or for a bit more $$, hotels. You will need a car to get around.
