Arroyo Seco, NM

Bruce Katlin combines his love and passion for intense activity and various art mediums to make a living and live a life fulfilled. The great outdoors is his ‘church’ and the flora and fauna is the choir. Bruce paints while trail running and hiking (often at the same time) in the wide and beautiful canvas of New Mexico. On his trail running and painting adventures the combined activities provide an unparalleled nirvana-like state, one where pragmatic thinking and intuitiveness flow effortlessly. For the past several years, he has been researching the effects of high altitude exercise and its linkage to creativity and divergent thinking, communicating with National and International research labs compiling their findings along with his own. Bruce’s paints with heavy layers of oil paint primarily in the alla prima (wet-on-wet) style, which gives his work a stained glass effect. Bruce is self-taught and a life-long learner.

As a writer, Bruce has published his first novel Birds Like Us, The Pi Phillecroix Story about a flightless pigeon born into a very famous family of French fliers who walks from Paris to the UK to try and save her beloved father’s life. He is working on turning the story into an animated film.
