Trish Wade

Trish WadeTrish has had an intimate relationship with paint all of her life. Since earliest memory, if paint was involved, she was in the middle of it, with parents who supported and encouraged her creative endeavors.

As a life-long New Mexican, this land is in her blood. It is her home. It is her constant source of energy and inspiration. Here in the high desert mountains she is surrounded in the rich colors of every sunrise and sunset, the diverse landscape, the traditions and cultures of our people. She expresses this best: “I am expressionistic in my paintings, I try to relay my own sense of wonder, magic, and emotion to the world around me. My own backyard. With a few symbolic spiritual conotations added in from my own personal quest for answers.”

As a self-taught acrylic painter, her use of rich, saturated color and unique textural elements is her attempt to express her own sense of wonderment, magic, mystery, and joy that she feels IS the soul of New Mexico.

A bit of Earth, a bit of Sky, of Ancient Spirit, of Modern Man, this is the place she wishes to bring the viewer. Her magical place…somewhere between physical reality and her spiritual connection to it.

Her work has been collected from coast to coast in private residences and commercial buildings.
