It is with pride that we present to you this series of artist interviews made at the historic Mabel Dodge Luhan house in Taos, New Mexico.

Maye’s voice is my favorite. She is seasoned, accessible, lovely, light, and deep-- all at the same time. I’ve known Maye for many years, back to the time when Golightly’s knitting studio was located in the historic Padre Martinez house, also Maye’s grandmother’s house. Her mother grew up there and Maye was married in the house. Golightly actually knit your watchcaps there for a time in 2007-2009. Maye’s son, Zach, used to come play the grand piano in the living room while we knit hats. Imagine!

Maye Torres

We were so fortunate to speak with Maye about her identity as an artist, and her amazing new gallery on the Taos plaza, Studio 107B. It is truly the best gallery in Taos and Maye’s work speaks volumes about the depth of a human she is. Her own art is mythical, exploring the power of the feminine and challenging the viewer to look at culture in the light of the ethereal.

“You know in your heart what you're supposed to do. So, just follow it.
