Retired teacher from Oakland, California, USA. Now living in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México. I graduated from St. Mary's College of California (Art Major, Math Minor). I've taken many course in Art History at St, Mary's and the University of California, Berkeley.
When I travel my primary interest is architecture. My 2012 trip to the Czech Republic, Bratislava and Budapest greatly increased my interest and in knowledge of Art Nouveau. A trip to Romania, Hungary, Serbia and Vienna in 2014 further in enhanced my AN experiences. During earlier trips to Europe I had seen Art Nouveau buildings, but hadn't been bitten by the Art nouveau bug yet.
I hope to learn from others who contribute to this website and to share my experiences. One goal is to present examples of the style here in Mexico.
