Q: What non-art book are you reading now?

A:  I am reading Kim Mac Quarrie’s, “The Last Days of the Incas.”  It’s fascinating to discover the intricacies of the epic conquest of the short-lived Inca empire.  The book is actually thrilling to read.  Mac Quarrie makes this story come alive.

Last summer I traveled to Peru to investigate the history of the Incas and the civilizations that preceded them.  In May of this year I continued my studies with a trip to Bolivia.  Both trips are proving to be highly inspirational for my art practice.

  1. I’m reading, Pax, by Sara Pennypacker. It’s about a boy named, Peter and his pet Fox. With the first paragraph, you’re hooked. Owen
