Where to find my art in Puerto Rico

If you live in or plan to visit Puerto Rico, you are first and foremost welcome to visit my studio in the mountains on the east end of the island. In saying that it sounds as if I live in a remote area. I don’t. It just seems that way because I’m on and acre and a half and the property is situated as such that it feels secluded and is quite lovely. That said, a visit to my studio is an easy 10 minute drive from the main east-west highway, Rte 3. I have a nice collection of original work as well as my reproductions. I also teach private classes and group workshops. I know I’m a tad biased, but I think these are all good reasons to come up and see me! Those interested can contact me through this blog or my email: monica@monicalinville.com.

If a studio visit doesn’t rock your world, my artwork is available in locations where just about everybody visits. I have original paintings and prints at Puerto Rico Arts & Crafts on Calle Forteleza in Old San Juan as well as a nice selection of prints at Eclectika, on the west side of Plaza Colon, also in Old San Juan. For those of you visiting the rainforest, the gift shop at El Portal, the visitors’ center at the entrance to El Yunque National Rain Forest is now carrying a nice variety of my smaller prints, perfect for mementos or gifts or both!

About monicalinvillefineart

I have been a working studio artist for over 30 years now. Self-taught, painting has been as much a part of my life as breathing. I learned by doing. Over 20 of those years have been spent on a little mountain in the Caribbean where my primary studio is located. I recently opened a second studio in Saratoga Springs, New York. I made the decision years ago that the best way to get people interested in coming to see my paintings was to simply be the best painter I could possibly be. Easel time. I put in a LOT of easel time. The gods have been good as I have been fortunate that in spite of my isolation from the art markets of the world, people still seek me out and find me. My work is now in collections around the world and students come to my mountain in search of instruction. My life has been good. I offer my world up to you as a refuge. I believe that is the purpose of my art.... it is a sanctuary for my soul while creating it and I would like it to be a sanctuary for yours while viewing it. I want to dance with you. I want to be part of your thoughts. I want to be part of your memory. Be delighted, please. Delight soothes the soul.
