Thanks for visiting purelysubjective! This blog is an ever evolving experiment in learning, creating, and sharing.
My name is Jourdie, and I was, until recently, a painter and pastry cook living in Southern California. Now I’m in France, living and studying Dharma, what the Buddha taught, at Dhagpo Kagyu Ling, a public center in the Dordogne that offers courses in Tibetan Buddhism and mindfulness. I also recently completed a semester of study in India at The Karmapa International Buddhist Institute.
Through it all, I do my best to continue exploring the world through art, food, and mindfulness. I write this blog to share my work and experiences with the world outside my kitchen, art studio, and meditation hall. As my life and practice are evolving, this has become a space to muse, explore, and connect with others.
I hope you find something that piques your curiosity or sticks in your mind. I’m always thrilled if you join the conversation, and I’m happy you’re here no matter what.
If you have something to share, please do leave a comment! You can also direct questions and inquiries about art to firstname.lastname@example.org. To find out more about my fine art work, check out my website www.jourdieross.com. Cheers and welcome!
