Angel Fire Designs

Strength - original landscape painting by Patricia Gould

I love dead trees; the stories they might tell, their tenacity, the ability to cling to cliffs such as this one in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. Museum wrapped. Unframed, wired, ready to hang. Although my first passion as an artist was photography, I have spent over 20 years creating my visions in mixed media fiber art before deciding in 2013 to concentrate my creative energy on painting and photography. My art has been exhibited internationally and has won numerous awards. In 2005, I was chosen to be an Artist-in-Residence for a month in Balatonfured, Hungary. Awards for my fiber art include a Niche Award in 2008 and again in 2013. The State of New Mexico has purchased and installed 10 of my landscapes as part of the Art in Public Places Program at various sites around New Mexico.
