Selected as a Texas Originals (TXO) Artist by the Texas Commission on the Arts
Pecks etchings explore the expressions of the various roles that women portray. The mystery, the glamour and the spirit of the female consciousness. Symbols of patience, nurturer and healer celebrating the mystical nature of the feminine spirit.
Most of my art career, I have spent painting. I was introduced to the printing process at Flatbed Press in Austin, Texas. I was taken in by the simplicity of the lines and the clarity of the images. I fell in love with the process or what I call the ritual. The dance between the artist, the copper plate and the flatbed press.
Most of my Etchings are created on recycled copper. Some pieces have scratches and impurities before I start but this just adds a uniqueness of working with recycled materials.
Growing up in the desert of New Mexico, I thought everyone was an artist. I was always exposed to local art and artists that came to New Mexico to study. Art is the vehicle I use to express the images that spring from my dreams and meditation, creating strength and health which can be drawn upon to bring greater happiness and contentment to our lives. Through my art, I am constantly trying to tap those hidden resources and communicate to the viewer of my work some of those feelings of joy and expansion.
