LPAPA Signature Artist Member Robin Purcell of Carlsbad, California
LPAPA’s October 2018 featured Signature Artist Member of the Month.
“From the time I was in kindergarten, they couldn’t get me away from the easel. Long winters in New England made me find ways to occupy myself. Coloring was a frequent activity. I remember liking the blank pages of coloring books the best so I could draw on my own.
In college, my practical side led me to study graphic design and work in graphic design. While also studying art history and visiting art museums frequently. Once I became a stay at home parent, I was able to study watercolor with William Ternes of Massachusetts and became focused on that one medium.
I moved to Northern California in 1995 and felt that painting outside was the logical thing to do. The Mediterranean climate and lovely rumpled landscapes became my subject. I am attracted to color, pattern and texture in the hills.” — Robin Purcell
