ABOUT THE ARTIST
Allyn Harad began seriously studying art in her undergraduate college years when she double majored in psychology and art. The marriage of the two disciplines rewarded her with a Master of Arts in Expressive Therapies and a concentration in Art Therapy. She notes how the professors repeated more than once "keep up with your own art". Allyn's art has evolved over the years:

How Mimi is Made
Mimi is made from graphite pencil. The background or scenery is added with watercolors. All Mimi paintings are miniatures and measurements can range from 2" x 3" to 6" x 8". Mimi’s Message to You
Hi, my name is Mimi. I live in New Mexico near the Sandia Mountains. I love the roadrunners and bobcats, but mostly listening to the howling coyotes in the wee morning hours. I like the quiet moments outdoors...snowflakes falling on my nose...gazing at the stars, horizons. I am thankful for carrots. Green and orange are my favorite colors. My life is simple yet rich. Each moment I share is about a slice of my life.
