Anyone who hails from or has been to Mexico knows that there’s simply something about Mexican culture that is infectious. Mexico was the second country outside of the US that I visited when I was first discovering my love of travel. That first trip, of course, led to more. And by the second time I visited Mexico, I was fully into my journey as an artist. And so, I was fully aware of the colorful vibe of Mexican architecture and the richness of the history of Mexico in both its Spanish Colonial past as well as the indigenous Mesoamerican cultures that once thrived there.
I have been to Mexico multiple times and each trip has increased my desire to spend more time there. After all, it was in Mexico that I learned firsthand about the incredible embrace of vibrant colors that permeates Latin America. And there’s no question that my Mexican art prints reflect the vibrant colors of Mexico. There’s just something about old stucco and Spanish Colonial architecture dripping in colors that will always bring a smile to my face.
And Mexican culture reflects not just the history of Spanish Colonial times but thousands of years of the indigenous cultures like the Maya that preceded it. Standing in the ruins of those ancient cities is a precious memory, and I think my prints of those ruins reflect that amazing experience.
Of course, no trip to Mexico would seem complete to me without a trip to the beach. As gorgeous as the landscapes in Mexico are in general, it’s the Mexican coastline that has most enthralled me. I could and have spent hours walking on those tropical beaches. My first experiences were on the Pacific coast, but my Mexican beach prints are from the coasts on the gulf and Caribbean coasts of the fabulous Yucatan peninsula. Without a doubt, my personal favorite part of Mexico and I think my my prints of those beaches are apt illustration of why.
Honestly it’s not possible for me to summarize why I have enjoyed and been inspired by Mexico to such a degree. I really think at the end of the day, I will have to let my Mexican art prints speak for themselves. I appreciate both the past and future patrons of my Mexico wall art. I suspect you see a kindred soul in these prints and I hope you will drop me a note to let me know why you picked a little piece of my Mexico to bring into your life! Thank you!
Your interest in my artwork is most appreciated!
The art you decorate with is something that you will look at for years to come. This is true whether it is wall art for your home or a public space in your place of business. Paint colors may come and go, but the artwork often outlives the rest of your decor choices.
That is why I am more than happy to answer any of your questions. Whether you want to know more about a specific piece of art or have a more general question, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I love the opportunity to discuss the story behind my art as much as sharing helpful details.
I am also open to discussing any special requests you may have. Perhaps you have a special decorating challenge or need artwork tailored to fit a specific space? Or you have a special design opportunity to discuss?
Well, I have always enjoyed challenging projects, so just ask!
This is only a portion of my Mexico artwork. I am still in the process of updating my galleries. To see the rest, please see my Full Mexico Print Collection available through Fine Art America.
