I am an artist and writer originally from the Pacific Northwest, now living in Mexico. As an abstract expressionist who believes that “Color is an animal that wags its own tail,” Mexico is a great place to be. Color is in the DNA of this beautiful country. Every walk is a treat for my eyes. For more about my life in Mexico, check out my Pelican Diaries at http://thepelicandiaries.com
In my posts here, I’ll showcase new paintings and also write about the process and my own philosophy as a painter who dabbled and yearned for years while busy with the rest of my life. I hope the joy of finally making time to go to art school and to eventually follow the passion will come through.
I was fortunate to find wonderful teachers (Maine College of Art and elsewhere) and to find Art & Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking by David Bayles and Ted Orland in Oregon.
