About Asuncion Purnell

Art Prints

I was born in Madrid. I remember getting fascinated with pencils, paper, color pencils, watercolor paint, etc when i was a little girl. I copied a Walt Disney deck of cards in a drawing pad, that i still have, and others cartoons from the comic books. My oldest brother Angel was also painting and getting prizes at the poster contest at the school, i got inspired by him to keep painting and drawing. I grew up and graduated with a major in Biology. I did not take any art classes until later. I had a very special teacher, Nelly Ryvkin, who taught me how to make etchings, monotypes, as well as become better in perspective and color. I used to go with my friend inside the art classes at the University of Madrid, where we had the opportunity to draw with a nude model. Since then i have been painting on and off. I moved to the States after i married, and have been here since then. I paint as much as i can because i enjoy it. I actually joined a painting group in my town, and i have a chance to paint in plein aire.
My brother Angel followed a different path, he was always a bohemian, and loved his freedom, he did a few paintings but stopped painting long ago. He stayed in Spain and is still there, it is not until recently that I encouraged him to retake his painting, he hesitated but finally started to paint again. It is inspirational to me to see how he transform a piece of wood he finds in the trash from the back of the furniture, into a beautiful piece of art. He uses anything he finds to paint on. I am very happy that he can show the world the talent he has ( much more than me), and it is also a therapy helping him to go through tough times of unemployment, etc. He is not fortunate to have a PC and that is why i am sharing my page with him. I created a gallery dedicated to his paintings named 'Angel de Paz', and will put his creations right there.
I hope you enjoy our joint adventure in the visual art.
