Over my lifetime I’ve had the privilege to visit Mexico several times. One of which includes attending an organic painting residency last year.
What I love about this beautiful country is the abundance in juxtaposition: Dry vs. wet, rough vs. smooth, cultured vs. wild. This contrast inspires the balance & tension I incorporate into my work, namely: maximum texture vs minimal color.
Through all this contrast remains a constant, warm hospitality I experience every time I return. I am grateful for this immense, inspiring and welcoming country.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
