This is a book of essays by Erin Lee Gafill. It includes excerpts from her on-line journal, The Big Sur Fix, as well as thoughts and poetry on creativity, life, distractions and telling the difference.
Each story is a beautifully written vignette that acts as a window into her life. Erin’s roots in the arts run deep. Her great-great grandmother was Jane Gallatin Powers, who had the first artist’s studio in Carmel, and who, along with her husband Frank, created the artists’ colony which today is Carmel-by-the-Sea. Her grandparents, Lolly and Bill Fassett build Nepenthe Restaurant in Big Sur, the legendary watering hole for artists, poets, writers and bohemians.
Erin herself has co-founded the Big Sur Arts Initiative, a non-profit arts education organization, and in 2001 was chosen to the first American artist-in-residence at the Hamada International Children’s Museum of Art in Hamada, Japan. Not only a writer, Erin is a talented painter and gifted teacher. Her work is collected internationally, and these limited edition prints are available through the Phoenix Shop.
