In Baja, an artist’s eye inspires her home, and her home inspires her art.
The artist in question is Patricia Larsen, an infinitely talented and increasingly well known painter whose impassioned, evocative work graces galleries from New York to La Paz. Though abstract, her pieces reveal the places and shapes, poets and creatures that inspire her. A native Canadian, Larsen is proud mother of the owners of one of our favorite restaurants and shops, Le Marché St. George in Vancouver (Larsen herself appears in our story on Le Marché’s Thanksgiving Feast).
Larsen has always made the world her home, having nested in picturesque locales like Salt Spring Island, Red Deer, and Hawaii, living and learning in New York City, Toronto, and Vancouver. She’s found a home where she means to stay; a place that inspires her work. With the help of friend and architect Julio Cesar Gomez, she designed her home in Pescadero, Mexico, at the very tip of the Baja Peninsula.
