Local artist Kathleen Carrillo welcomes beginner, intermediate and advanced students to participate in any of her one-day painting workshops that take place at her Emiliano Zapata studio. The artist encourages participants to finish a landscape, tropical flower or foodie painting in one session.

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 Constitución 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.

Carrillo is a professional artist, a certified soul coach, a university professor of fine art, a professional business woman, and an advocate for the empowerment of women. In addition, Carrillo hosts longer retreats and workshops at her B&B and retreat center in Paso Ancho, just outside Puerto Vallarta, on an ongoing basis. The location—rural Mexico, surrounded by nature and the sounds of birds and a nearby river—is ideal for those interested in an immersive experience that includes painting time, excursions to nearby villages, yoga retreats and much more.

“Vallarta Lifestyles has readers from Punta de Mita to Mismaloya and beyond, so announcing my business, means the positioning and recognition of my agency throughout the region. The contents of the magazine are very interesting, because they provide relevant information about activities in the destination. I am pleased to see it at hotels, restaurants and galleries, but what excites me the most is to see people with their issue in hand. That is really relevant for us.”

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”

"Since we started the company we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles, a publication that is considered ‘Puerto Vallarta’s Magazine’ by the quality of its images, content and staff, unique characteristics that encouraged us to say: ‘We have to be in Vallarta Lifestyles’. We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”
