I am a sculptor and teacher, originally from Boston. I finished my MFA in visual art UCLA last year, (finally) left the westside and have been living in my dreamhouse in Silverlake since last year. I love living in Silverlake because the walk-ability reminds me of my east-coast roots. There is an endless variety of delicious vegan food, $5 yoga, fantastic neighbors, its culturally diverse and gay-friendly.
I'm very interested in alternative histories and sites in Los Angeles, so if you're looking for off-the-beaten-track tourist information, I am excited to share my knowledge. I also can point you in the right direction if you're looking for more typical tourist information. I go out to art shows and other events all week long and have tons of recommendations.
I'm currently preparing for two sculpture shows so I'm not around the house as much, but typically I work from home as a graphic designer and pet portrait artist (search Pet Aristocracy online if you want to see:) I do still try to make time to cook delicious vegan meals, and guests are welcome to dine when I do! Also, although I am vegan myself, I have so issues with food that anyone else chooses to eat or cook.
