SFW&C Fiesta Featured Artist 2012

​It was 25 years ago that Kapp opened her studio on Canyon Road in Santa Fe. The studio eventually evolved into Waxlander Gallery, where over time she nurtured and represented countless other artists.

Kapp, who was born in Chicago in 1930, has often said she is inspired by nature, specifically the landscapes of northern New Mexico. But she is quick to point out that her work stays fresh and is always changing in spite of her long-standing attraction to this rugged region as subject matter.

“Nature,” she once said, “doesn’t do things in the same way all the time. Why should I?”
