Kathleen Carrillo


Originally from California, internationally acclaimed Kathleen Carrillo resides in the jungle just outside of Puerto Vallarta, where she runs an art retreat center and studio with her husband, writer Andrew Marcus. She has a master’s degree in fine art and has devoted the last two decades to painting, receiving numerous international accolades. To make her colorful depictions of Mexico more accessible to the public, she has a gallery on Basilio Badillo St., where visitors can browse her diverse paint collections, including “Smok’in Jazz,” and “Architectural Whimsy,” among others, along with personally signed, limited edition giclée prints.
