New Mexico, The Land of Enchantment in the world.
Work brought me to this foreign land three years ago. Starting from scratch, I slowly built up a new life for myself here. Collecting bits and pieces about New Mexico’s history, nature, architecture and food whenever possible had become second nature to me.
A huge thanks to all the amazing friends I’ve met along the way. Following the tips and recommendations I’ve so blessedly received, I journeyed through almost the entire state. Every trip I took was an incrementally stronger antidote against my homesickness and loneliness. I’m spilling my gratitude onto the canvas. I’ve created four pieces of art inspired by the scenic landscapes of New Mexico. They’re swimming in the space between realism and surrealism – a state that mirrors my three years here.
Last but not least, to my lovely readers out there, no matter where you are and what you’re experiencing, I hope you’ll take a deep breath, look at the view around you, and remember that life is a luxury.
