I live a few steps from the Pacific Ocean and love watching the ocean waves by day and hearing them crash softly in the night. Ocean Beach is a special neighborhood—artsy, funky and a little set back in time, yet timeless. I recently heard someone describe it as “the best little town on earth”… To say it is unique would be an understatement. The ocean is so healing and peaceful; living so close to it definitely brings a constant calmness into your life. I created this illustration to represent all these characteristics and the beauty of my neighborhood, Ocean Beach.

A perfect day? A day filled with many hours spent outdoors having fun in the sun with great friends, a dip in the ocean, followed by the weekly farmers market in the evening and drinks on the porch at sunset.
For the visitor? If someone were visiting Ocean Beach, they should definitely experience the weekly farmers market which is filled with great food, artisan goods, music from local bands, and the community coming together for a weekly celebration of all things good.
A perfect meal? A meal from one of the many great vendors at the farmers market or from the deli at the local co-op.
A little known fact about where you live? There is an annual Christmas Parade that can get pretty wacky!
