About the Artist

Tauna Cole is originally from Idaho where she received her BFA in painting at Boise State

University. In 1999, she received her MFA in Painting from New Mexico State University and

began her teaching career teaching part time at NMSU and El Paso Community College.

Currently, she is an Associate College Professor at NMSU where she has been teaching in the

Department of Art for the last 20 years. She is currently a member of the Border Artists, and
