I'm Rowena

Hi World!

I'M rowena rizo-patron

Hi,...I was the black sheep of a Peruvian family. I was born in 1956, went to all the right schools and I can tell it was a beautiful era. I remember fondly spending vacations with my eighty one first cousins at the family hacienda (large agricultural state), where we used to ride horses through the mountains, playing cops and robbers, and hide-and-seek in the corn and cotton fields.We were convinced of the ghosts that lived in the ancient cemetery where they used to dance without their heads around a campfire every full moon; of the mystical 'Chalan' that used to ride at night through the path along the entrance to the Main House with his horse not touching the ground and other spooky stories used to wake up at night with a sensation that somebody was dictating phrases in my head and I had to grab a pen and write it anywhere. Sometimes this ghost came to my mind while I was in the shower and I even took my brow cosmetic pencil to write with it in the mirror of the bathroom. That is how I started writing poetry since I was 12 years old.My poetry was rebellious, magical and surrealistic much as my story books are and now my paintings.I have been published in Peru, Spain, Argentina and Mexico. But about 15 years ago I started trying to paint the images in my dreams, with the same abstract/magic/surrealist ghosts that spoke to me, now they are making me see the colors flowing through my eyes and I try to interpret them as well as I can.I paint what I really feel, I am not able to create based on other's preferences. I created this website to be able to share my paintings with the world, because I think that art is for sharing, as all our magnificent painters shared their art throughout the centuries, since the age of the men who lived in caves...
