About the Mosaic Artist

Elizabeth Hunt Klinksiek's first visit to New Mexico was in 1973 when she moved to the village of Madrid, located 19 miles from Santa Fe. She has enjoyed living in the following communities in New Mexico: Santa Fe, Nambé, the Turquoise Trail (Highway 14), Los Alamos, Lamy, the family ranch near Las Vegas, Albuquerque and in the East Mountains near Cedar Grove.

While she worked as an accountant, her goal was to work in the Fine Arts, a result of taking years of college courses in art history, silversmithing, black and white photography and darkroom, hand building and wheel pottery and painting. She received her BBA Cum Honore from the College of Santa Fe in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1994. She is married to Stephen A. Klinksiek who recently completed his PhD in Physics at the University of New Mexico.  Elizabeth and Steve have three daughters between them, Alexis, Laurel and Alyssa.

Elizabeth was awarded third place for her first entry in a juried art show at the Expo New Mexico 2004 State Fair for her work on the Mexican Amberwing Dragonflies mosaic mirror. Also accepted for exhibition at the Expo that year was her marble mosaic table, Los Tres Osos. The following year she created a glass sculpture, Iluminada, Mother and Child, that was accepted for exhibition in the Fine Arts Gallery, 2005. Her entry for 2006 was Il Sentiero di Cipresso Italiano that was on display in the Fine Arts Building.
