a Los Angeles aesthetic

One of my new favorite blogs – a Los Angeles aesthetic!

This recent grad has much to say about contemporary art and her blog is filled with reflections and photography. As a matter of fact, her entries remind me to carve time out of my busy schedule to address the things I love outside of the office. Her blog certainly serves as a catalyst for me but it’s also a great way to see what’s going on in her area (Santa Monica, CA). Please give her blog a visit!

You can also find her listed on my Blogroll should you need a reminder of where to find the LA Aesthetic!
