Painting of "The Youngest Dancer" on easel in Carole's studio

Carole Belliveau: When I visited Santa Fe New Mexico in 2017, the first stop was to the iconic Plaza where I found the annual Fiesta in full swing. The Plaza was crowded with Mariachi Musicians, picnickers on the grass and dancers lining up at the stage to perform. I was entranced by the excited little girls in their Mexican costumes. This new collection Ballet Folklorico celebrates the traditions and community spirit of New Mexico, a spirit that convinced me to move here.
