A powerful presence pervades all of Ethelinda’s work. She creates dynamic paintings that accentuate life, depicting real things – horses, dogs, fruits, flowers, Indian peoples – and through her vision transforms them into grander versions of themselves. Her horses race toward the viewer, free and unfettered, almost larger than life. Her Indians are detailed and authentic. Her fruit and flower still lifes are bold and colorful. Ethelinda lives and has her studio in New Mexico.
