I'm an artist. I have had a studio in my home on Sun Valley Drive since 1974. I have taught at the Laguna College of Art + Design and shown my work at the Laguna Museum of Art, and am actively exhibiting my work in Orange County, Los Angeles and elsewhere in the U.S. and abroad. Although I support the concept of artist live-work, I oppose this project because it is too big and at the wrong location. It will change the character of the canyon and have a negative effect on the Sun Valley neighborhood.

I am writing in full support of the artist live-work space proposed by Louis Longi. I am a Laguna College of Art and Design alumni of the undergrad and graduate programs and I have been showing at the Festival of Art for the past four years. I have been living and working as an artist for 12 years in Laguna Beach. The entire time I have been here it has been a struggle to find a reasonable studio and live space. A few years ago I was forced to start a group studio in Costa Mesa due to the high rent cost and lack of space here in Laguna.
