About

Presenting the Art Work of Vicki Bolen, Paper Artist Extraordinaire

I am an artist living and creating art in Albuquerque, NM. Albuquerque has a vibrant arts scene, full of opportunities to learn from and collaborate with other artists. I am a member of the Amapola Gallery. This arts cooperative has been in Albuquerque's Old Town for nearly 35 years.

This year, I collaborated with a group of women artists to exhibit our art along Mountain Road where my studio is located. I am also working with my shop assistant and fiber artist, Deb Weaver, to create a "Quirky House" for an auction at the non-profit Off-Center Arts and its arts programs for the homeless and housing insecure.

My chief collaborator, in my art and in life, is the poet Richard Wolfson. Over the years, his poetry has found its way into my art. His poetry is featured on my handmade greeting cards and in quotes included with my handmade boxes. Richard and I, along with our dogs, travel to art fairs around the country. These are great opportunities to sell new products and obtain customer feedback so I can fine-tune new products before posting them on Etsy.

Recently, I was excited to learn that the City of Albuquerque has purchased an outdoor installation of my hand-painted, Tyvek origami cranes through its 1% for the Arts program. Tyvek is a thin plastic used in everything from FedEx envelopes to hazmat suites. Originally developed as a moisture barrier in building construction, Tyvek is durable and weather-resistant. Imagine being able to have your own string of origami cranes that you can leave outside year round!
