About the Author:

Liz’s love affair with the American West started in college when she worked as city weed controller in Nebraska and horse and people wrangler in Colorado. As curator for The Anschutz Collection (1981-1994), she organized and circulated an assemblage of premier paintings of the American West. The exhibition toured throughout the United States, to cities in Europe, and to parts of China and the former Soviet Union. In 1994 Liz moved to Taos. Her writing career blossomed, culminating in the award-winning book, In Contemporary Rhythm: The Art of Ernest L. Blumenschein, the definitive volume on this Taos art colony co-founder. The story of women in and of the American West has interested her since 1985. Some years ago, she gave several lectures on “Leading Ladies of Taos.” Fascinated by the remarkable women who founded cultural institutions in New Mexico, Liz researched the lives and contributions of Lucy Harwood, Mary and Helen Blumenschein, Helene Wurlitzer, Millicent Rogers and Mabel Dodge Luhan. As an extension of her research and writing pursuits, she now hosts the blog “Mabel Dodge Luhan and the Remarkable Women of Taos”. The blog became the catalyst for the Town of Taos theme for 2012, a year-long recognition and celebration of remarkable Taos women. Liz wrote profiles (short biographies) of over 30 women for the Town of Taos Remarkable Women website and serves as facilitator for events around this theme. She is currently polishing her manuscript Stones Into Bread: The Lives and Letters of Peggy Pond Church and Corina Aurora Santistevan, Two Women of New Mexico for publication.
