I'm am an arts executive in Los Angeles. I've been hosting international artists from around the world for nearly two decades. Artists feel right at home at our art center. There are outdoor patios, a community garden and lots of local friendly artists to interact with who also have studios here on site.
I'm a dedicated Buddhist, and I have a life long passion for learning, especially about arts and culture, indigenous histories, and the sciences. I was raised on a horse ranch in California and love being outdoors.
