Algunas imágenes de mi exposición en Tébar. Con gran agradecimiento a la asociación cultural Debajo del Olmo, y al ayuntamiento de Tébar.
Since moving back to Spain last year, I have once again been enthralled by the stark landscapes of the Spanish heartland. In the past years, however, a new element has transformed the wide horizons of the Manchuela Conquense: hundreds of wind turbines now turn silently against the azure skies. Together with the solar farms, they are the new crops of this land where Don Quijote once fought windmills of a different sort. What would he make of these new giants? I have tried to find beauty in the huge blades that dwarf even the tallest pines. My latest paintings are the result of this search. They will be on display at the end of this month at the Casa Museo in Tébar, a village that has the highest density of wind farms in this beautiful region I now call home.
A little about myself...
Hello there and thank you for visiting my website! I am an artist as well as a teacher with a Ph.D. in Spanish Literature and a Master's in TESOL. I studied art at the University of Texas at Austin, MassArt, and the Seattle Art Academy, and have shown my work in countless venues around the United States, among them at the Vashon Center for the Arts, the Waldron Gallery and the SOFA Gallery in Bloomington, Indiana, and my art is in private collections in the US, the Netherlands, France, Germany and Spain. As you can see elsewhere on this website, I have published several books for children, among them El Loro Tico Tango and El Fandango de Lola, a 2012 Ezra Jack Keats Honor Book.
