The Alliance has developed an Artist Roster, a database (including artists’ biographies, areas of expertise and contact information) of area artists and art education professionals to build a broad and culturally diverse database of artists and arts entrepreneurs in our community.

The Alliance Artists Roster is a service to schools, libraries, arts organizations, event organizers, businesses and other service providers in our area who often want to engage creative folks and artists to work with them. And of course – we want to bring more visibility to the artists who live and work in our community!

The Artist Roster is open to any area artist who feels they have arts experiences to share, as long as they provide the necessary information and can define what they have to offer.

To submit your information – or to let us know of artists in the community that we should include, contact is at or click the button below.

Raised in Hobbs, New Mexico, the beauty and color of nature shows in Kathy’s weavings and tapestries. Her designs display traditional Rio Grande style while incorporating French tapestry techniques. She weaves in her she-shed with her Australian shepherds in attendance.
While showing horses, she was introduced to not only the beauty but the utility of Navajo saddle blankets. Kathy was able to take lessons from native artisans in northern New Mexico in 2015. Once she learned the basics of Rio Grande style weaving and the utility of Churro wool, her imagination was whetted. Her first pieces were saddle blankets and table runners. The weaving styles used were Rio Grande stripes, Chimayo and Saltillo. She now incorporates these weaving styles with leather on her unique purses and totes. Kathy’s tapestry weavings depict landscapes, seascapes and flowers. These works of art have been juried into national and international art shows, receiving first place honors at several. Saddle Blanket 2018 was used at the 2018 Induction Ceremony held at the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame.
Kathy is based near Holliday, Texas. Her work can be seen at her studio. She frequently has pieces at The Gallery in Wichita Falls, Texas. Please feel free to contact her at 940-631-2598 or Her work can also be seen on Facebook at Weavings by Kathy.
