San Diego has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.
Below, you’ll find some incredible artists and creative professionals from in and around Coronado Island that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Before I start any project I do a special ritual, I breathe and meditate to empty my mind. When I paint, draw and do my arts, I am in a deep state of awareness, in another world, another dimension.
