Now about the artist–Todd Tibbals was born in Columbus, Ohio, graduated from Miami University in Ohio and was tabbed for one of the first Peace Corps groups in 1962. Todd has combined four years of Peace Corps work in Peru and Ecuador, a Masters Degree in Latin American History and formal training at the Corcoran School of Art to emerge as a preeminent visual interpreter of the Latin American and Southwestern realities. For Todd, New Mexico, where he has painted and taught since 1970, represents a cultural halfway house between his Midwestern roots and his Latin American experiences. Todd has garnered many awards while exhibiting his watercolors, acrylics and drawings throughout the United States, Mexico and Italy. We are fortunate to have such an accomplished artist as a neighbor and supporter of Rio Grande Community Farm!
