Creative Life in Mexico

My sweetheart Alex and I are creating artist residency spaces for workshops and private retreats here in Oaxaca, Mexico. (Oaxaca is pronounced Wa-ha-ka, and is both a city and a state, like New York, NY). 

We’re calling it Art House Oaxaca, which is hidden behind an adobe wall, behind our cafe, Viajero Cafe Arte. Viajero means traveler in Spanish. Viajero Cafe Arte has a full espresso bar, featuring dairy-free milks, and our menu includes delicious vegan and gluten-free options. Do come visit us if you happen to be in Oaxaca. The links take you to their respective Facebook pages, so you can see upcoming events and opening hours.

One of the things I love best about Oaxaca (and it’s a very long list!) is the colonial architecture feature the buildings have of being hidden behind tall adobe walls. When you enter through the arched doorways, it’s always a surprise to see gardens, and interior patios behind the entry patios.

It’s a city of secret gardens and hidden treasures waiting to be discovered. Magical.

To stay in touch with updates on our artist residency, studio sales, upcoming workshops and other goodness, subscribe to my blog (I write a weekly-ish post on the themes of creativity + travel + courage) and you’ll get everything sent right to your inbox.

Meanwhile, I wish you a beautiful & creative day, wherever you are in the world.

Go gently,

with care, Lisa Sonora
