Please visit my studio Sept 22-23 and 29-30 for the annual “High Road Studio Tour”. My studio is located at 5330 Hwy 518, Vadito NM. It is exactly 1 mile north of Sipapu Ski Area on Hwy 518. So head towards Sipapu  and you’ll find me just before the resort.  I’ll be open 9am-5pm each day, so come see me.

The High Road to Taos Scenic Byway is a lovely, winding road through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains between Santa Fe and Taos. It offers magnificent vistas of snow-capped peaks, alpine meadows, and charming traditional Spanish and Pueblo villages.

This lovely scenery has inspired many artists and artisans who live along the High Road, some of whom are featured in our blog:

We welcome you to come, explore, and help sustain the rural economy of this charming, centuries-old region. Always the last two full weekends of September, the 2018 High Road Art Tour takes place September 22, 23 and 29,  30.
