With a small change in her name, I found Delinda just up the road in Taos. Her focus is now sculpture, which if you check out her online gallery, you will note is nothing short of spectacular.
Unable to locate her or her publisher, I found a copy of her book, The Illuminated Beading Manuscripts Book II: The Loom, through an online bookseller. It arrived this morning. Aside from being a perfect resource on loomwork, it also had some contact info on the last page. I did a reverse phone-lookup, and from that extrapolated to a web search that found her current website.
Reading her bio reminded me of how important it is to grow, to change, to constantly evolve. Becoming well versed in one medium, we should never be so comfortable or complacent with ourselves as to discount the importance of being challenged, of trying new things, of stretching ourselves in search of our limits.
While her beadwork was (note the past tense) a small part of her artistic repertoire, her current works have the power to inspire us, no matter what our medium might be.
