So this is where it all began — the world famous Oceanfront walk in Venice Beach, California. I started out back in 2011 with only a small rickety table displaying some hand painted cigar boxes and original paintings. Over the last couple of years I 've adapted to better meet the needs of the boardwalk folk by developing tourist-friendly prints of my original larger works.

By adapting in this way I have watched my business grow — and now tourists visiting from all over the globe happily collect my art in the California sunshine. Selling affordable prints of my work has allowed me to make this a full time gig--so I can focus on creating and growing my art business 100% of the time.

You can find me & my art set up on the boardwalk near the corner of Rose Ave & Oceanfront Walk. Contact me at carissa@artlab23.com to find out exactly when I'll be there next (schedule varies).
