Rick Berg UNMCE InstructorRick Berg graduated college in 1972, then spent the next 6 years traveling around the world. He was a diver and journalist in Costa Rica, climbed in the Himalayas and Andes, and hitch hiked across the Sahara. He was the sixth person to do a solo canoe descent of the Amazon. He then returned to the U. S. to get a Ph.D. in economics from UC‐Berkeley, but mostly to climb rocks in Yosemite. After that he spent 5 years at UC‐Santa Cruz, twice being nominated as its outstanding teacher. But once again adventure called, so he built a sailboat and spent 9 years sailing it around the Pacific and Indian Oceans, stopping to teach economics at universities in New Zealand and Macau, but mostly windsurfing, diving, and climbing coconut trees. In 1995 he sold the boat and moved to New Mexico, where he started a successful software development company, DataWizards, specializing in database design for both web and desktop, and the creation of custom Excel spreadsheets. Clients include the Albuquerque police and fire departments, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and many private corporations. Most recently, he has been writing software in the Kingdom of Bhutan. In addition, Rick satisfies his love of teaching by giving classes at the University of New Mexico Department of Continuing Education.

My fine art is an interpretation of social, historical and cultural arts. In my work, I deconstruct iconic images and interpret them by building on symbolic messages. Having engaged in subjects as diverse as the Mexican Revolution, Latino arts, traditional Spanish Colonial arts and Pop Culture, I reproduce familiar visual signs and some derived from ancient motifs, arranging them into conceptually layered pieces. These various bodies of work are exhibited in galleries and local venues.Experienced as a graphic illustrator and designer, I paint contemporary portraits of celebrities and musicians capturing their personalities and epic moments in their careers. As a muralist, my themes are historical and cultural; my intention is to bring awareness of environmental components and intertwine them with the culture and vitality of the community.I teach multicultural and fine arts workshops in public and private schools, UNM Continuing Education, city events, and community centers and museums. I began teaching in 2000, by bringing my own art after school programs to the community in order to support arts education. I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of children and families from many diverse cultures through out New Mexico.

Kristin Diener UNMCE InstructorThis dedicated artist recently went full‐time in her career as an artist, making metal jewelry and teaching the craft to others. Her serendipitous path led her to enroll in a Jewelry Making class at a small Mennonite College in Ohio, where her instructor became her first mentor. Kristin says of her first encounter with creating metal jewelry, “I liked what I was able to make and the thoughts I was able to achieve.” Kristin was hooked immediately when she discovered the torch, its flame and the tools of jewelry metalworking in her youth; she had found her calling.Kristin earned a Master of Fine Arts from Bowling Green University in Ohio. Then, on to Missouri where she began teaching fine arts classes at a small college. Her questing spirit later took her to Boston, Massachusetts, to a job she loved, teaching at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. Kristin supplemented her income with residential and commercial painting in Boston and then her own house painting business when she came to Albuquerque. Recently, Kristin took the plunge and is now a full time artist and teacher with her own studio. Her work is selling in galleries in New Orleans and Albuquerque. She brings her MFA and professional teaching background to Continuing Education at UNM. In 2004, this unique individual began challenging Continuing Education students with her own brand of bold, unconventional and whimsical artistic vision, rooted in the solid fundamentals of a traditional jewelry‐making craft. Her classes have inspired a following from the start. Like Kristin with her own first jewelry instructor years ago, many of her students are very loyal to her instruction and repeat the advanced class to pursue their own artistic visions.The Beginning Jewelry / Metals course starts with a series of sterling silver rings. Students learn to size, texture, chase, and form, then bezel‐set a cabochon stone.“I like teaching people of all different levels. Most have their own ideas of what they want to do when they come to the class, so I work with those ideas and desires. I don’t teach assignments,” says Kristin.Her smile seems to say, “you can do it” for her students. Kristin inspires them to dare to dream, big or small. “When teaching, I like to take something that can be very difficult and present it in a way that is simple and realistic,” says Kristin. Her students tackle the intricacies of fine metalworking in a spirit of fun under her watchful eyes, which may sport whimsy‐colored glasses. Kristin enjoys watching people react to her jewelry. Some of her work is on the serious side and some pieces, toy‐like, inspire people to play.Photo by Kyle Zimmerman.

Jill Gatwood has lived in New Mexico for 45 years. After working for many years as an epidemiologist in New Mexico and the Caribbean, Jill is now a fulltime mosaic artist and hiker. She likes art that is not just viewed, but is participatory: that can be experienced, touched and felt, and that changes with the light and angle. Jill’s focus has been in transforming common household items into works of mosaic art that highlight the innate, iconic beauty of their shapes and purpose. Some favorites are mailboxes, tables, toasters and other kitchen appliances, as well as skulls. She also teaches mosaic art classes and workshops in venues around Albuquerque and in her home studio. She loves to watch self‐proclaimed “non‐artists” redefine themselves when they start to work with tiles.

There he remained for the better part of ten years. In Washington DC after his discharge, Greene attended his first drawing classes at a Georgetown University summer art program, and knew immediately, at 25, that he’d found his m

William Heenan UNMCE InstructorEducator, writer, and amateur linguist, Bill Heenan holds a Master’s Degree in Teaching Languages. He has spent more than four years teaching Arabic at the college level in both classroom and online environments. He also lived in Saudi Arabia and Yemen for more than five years. Bill got hooked on languages and travel as a Peace Corps volunteer in Chad, where he used Arabic and French daily. He is currently teaching Arabic at CNM and Wayland Baptist University. He firmly believes that language learning expands students’ horizons in multiple directions and centers them in the host cultures. For these reasons, he encourages students to immerse themselves in the new language and be brave, willing to experiment and make mistakes—that’s how we learn.

Hi! My name is Annick. I’m the French instructor at UNMCE. I was born in France, near Lyon, but I’ve lived in many different regions in France, as well as in England, where I taught French for a year after College. I worked for a long time as an information researcher, then, when my husband got a motivating job opportunity in the US, we moved to New York City, and began a whole new life. I opened a tour guiding business, catering to French speaking visitors, and even wrote a book about the city. After ten years of hustle and bustle though, we were ready for a less stressful life, so we settled in New Mexico. It was four years ago, and I absolutely love this region, Albuquerque, and my job at UNMCE. It’s just wonderful to see the pleasure in my student’s eyes, when they grasp a new concept, or realize they’ve said a whole sentence in French, almost naturally! I also feel very honored, because people here are very open, and all my students show a great curiosity about French culture.

Some say New Mexico is the ‘Land of Enchantment’ and that is true. Others jokingly say it isthe ‘Land of Entrapment’ because once you come here and experience the breathtakinglybeautiful landscape, the rich and diverse culture and history, the people and the lively arts andcultural venues there are in this beautiful place, your heart becomes one with New Mexico; itcalls you and you come. New Mexico called me, all the way from upstate New York, and in2016, I was fortunate enough to begin a wonderful adventure, to travel from the east to thewest and discover this beautiful and magical place, truly the ‘Land of Enchantment’.As an artist, I like to think of Georgia O’Keefe and her path, traveling to New Mexico from NewYork, painting the New Mexican landscape in her vivid colors that some would think couldn’t be possible in ‘real life’…but, ah, they are! It has been an inspiration to me, as well, the desireto drink in the beauty of the colors of the sunset, the enormity of the cloud‐filled sky, the pink and red glow of the Sandia Mountains at sunset. It’s obvious what Georgia saw was truly what she painted! I try my hand at capturing the beauty of this new landscape in my recent artwork. I hope to do it justice as I venture in a new realm of landscape painting!Everywhere you turn here, there is inspiration to be found. My inspiration has always been thehuman face. The unique beauty in everyone that makes each of us special. The way time andlife’s experiences create each line, shaping expression, all that is found upon the face, eyesthat express all that is kept behind them, in the soul. There’s nothing more rewarding to methan capturing not only the likeness of a person but the essence of who they are; to create apainting which portrays the complete person in the unique beauty that only they possess.The joy of humanity is coupled in me with memories of childhood…the things that broughthappiness like the toys we played with, fun treats we ate that made childhood a magical time! I love painting all the joyful things that childhood is made of and I hope that these paintingsbring back fond memories for the viewer and maybe a smile and laugh or two!Thank you for your interest in my work! If you would like to see more (I also have been thrilledto have had a wonderful career as a faux finish painter and mural artist), please visit mywebsite: www.cynthiamulvaney.webs.com. I take portrait commissions of all types as well(people, pets, homes, you name it!)(“Earth” without ‘art’ is just ‘eh’!)

I received my Bachelors in Psychology from California State University, Long Beach, my Masters in Counseling, from USC and my doctorate from the California School of Professional Psychology (now Alliant University), in Los Angeles, in 1979.I worked many years for private mental health clinics in California. I was on the staff of Cedars‐Sinai Medical Center from 1985‐1991 where I began my tenure, there, as a psychologist in both the adult and child outpatient departments. In 1988, I was promoted to supervisor where I supervised psychological interns from both USC and UCLA. I led seminars on various topics and participated in weekly multidisciplinary staff meetings where unusual and interesting treatment cases were presented.From 1994‐2006 I ran my own business in Woodland Hills, Ca. I worked with many types of people, performing individual, family, couples and group psychotherapy. I wrote extensive worker’s compensation evaluations as well as child custody reports.My areas of interest are quite widespread. Having worked with police personnel in Los Angeles, I gained experience in Post‐Traumatic Stress Disorder with its many facets and degrees of severity. I am a strong believer in existential theory in that every human being has the ability to define his own destiny within the scope of his/her particular physical limits. I believe in the theories of Abraham Maslow and his self‐actualization doctrine as well as Viktor Frankl who believed that people without a personal, well‐defined meaning in life, merely exist, but do not live.I treat traditional psychological problems such as anxiety, depression, grief reactions, phobias, marriage difficulties, empty nest concerns and personal detachment and separation problems. I also work with geriatric issues, revolving around personal mortality, loss of physical and mental functioning, loss of a life partner and loss of personal meaning (this, of course, is not limited to the geriatric population)I am also a creative writer. I have had a play of mine performed in Santa Fe in 2009. I am currently a writer for ETHER BOOKS, an online publishing concern, that permits IPhones, Droids, Blackberries and other such mobile phone devices to download stories, poems and essays. I published book on marriage called GIVE AND TAKE WITH EB AND FLO and also published a full length stage play, entitled, UNTIL WE’RE CALLED TO RISE.

Sam is in high school at the Academy, loves reading, computers and dogs; Ben is at Double Eagle Elementary School and loves soccer, swords and video games; Ellie is also at Double Eagle and loves art, fairy books and ice cream. Doug enjoys running and mountain biking in the foothills, belongs to a book club and loves to read everything from post‐apocalypse fiction (The Road, The Stand, The Passage) to philosophy, science and humor (David Sedaris and The Onion). He was an avid water skier in his youth and wishes Albuquerque had more lakes. He enjoys pop‐up trailer camping in the mountains with Cindy and the kids, playing cards and strategy games (Puerto Rico, Settlers of Catan, Agricola) , dark chocolate, dark beer and rock‐n‐roll. Doug completed his first marathon in 2009 and hasn’t yet decided if he liked it

Dr. Norton was born in a drafty log cabin in the Carpathian Mountains.... Actually, close but not that close. She was born in the former Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic, and thanks to the former USSR, she came as a refugee with her family to Canada. She wanted to become a veterinarian, but somehow she became a historian, generally regarded as a much less useful profession. After graduating from the University of Western Ontario with BA and MA in history, she sought the warmer climate of New Mexico, U.S.A. Several years, and a Ph.D. later, she still resides, with her English husband, in the Land of Enchantment. Although she considers herself a recovering academic, she can't seem to give up her favorite subject, and she therefore shares her passion for it by consulting, occasionally teaching, and lately writing. Well, she does not really like the writing part; she likes the research and the finishing part.
