Ali my Artist- I Find The Light in You

The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery~ Mark Van Doren

This past weekend we had the opportunity to see our daughter, Alison’s art exhibit in Santa Fe. As proud parents, we are

pleased to announce Alison has 2 pieces displayed! The exhibition consisted of art submitted by SFCC college students, their teachers, and only 16

NMSA high school students were chosen. As you enter the gallery Alison’s is on the far right.

Titled “Holes Inside”

Alison Penn NMSA Visual Art Student

Out of the 16 NMSA students, five were invited to participate in a dialog with other students and a panel of teachers. Questions like “What is art? What does art mean to you? What is our role as artists in society?” were asked and the dialog began. The conversation escalated with the last question. The answers varied from being social commentaries, help simplify society, and reflect our perspective of the world. Alison felt honored to engage with the other artists.

The Artist explains her vision to her Dad.

I love this image: As a mother, my heart swells to witness someone stopping to observe, study, and

meditate on a work of art my daughter created. Yes, there were many tears this night- I am an emotional creature.

The night’s festivities are over and we head out to leave. Our four darling creatures head out together- our 3 sons and 1 daughter-

caught in a moment of togetherness.

I love this moment.

What is art without music?

Some of Ali’s art projects were inspired by Joe’s music.



Pat Lilley Jewelry Maker


I am always excited when Mrs. Pat Lilley calls the studio and says she has a new piece of jewelry that needs to be photographed.

This is the third set I have photographed for Pat. Jewelry Making has been Pat’s passion for several years.

I met Pat in 1999 in Tap dance class at Miss Minnie’s School of  Ballet. We tapped together two mornings a week for a few years.

She is a magnicifiant tapper; a natural. Pat always reminded me of the adorable Shirley Temple while dancing!

 Pat Lilley is a true inspiration in my life. Not only is she an amazing jeweler,  she is also the amazing mother of 10 children!
