I've seen her work for years in her Laguna Beach gallery and on Catalina. She is uniquely gifted, and her work is world-renowned. Even if you're not buying anything, this is a must-see exhibition (operated by her son, BTW.) Some very affordable, unique Catalina souvenirs...More

So very talented, wish I was as talented as she is...She paints in glowing colors. I'm more of an old world type of painting person. Not so much of a glowing artist, when you turn the lights down the painting comes alive...quite amazing really

This place offered a taste of Catalina Island culture. The artist whose work is displayed here obviously loves where she lives. Fun, bright colors in paintings with a variety of scenes around the island.
