Other things to note
The counter-culture, flower power center of the 60s, bohemian Berkeley has evolved into a culinary and cultural travel scene. Shift into low gear and people-watch along quirky Telegraph Avenue while checking out the bookstores and cafes. After strolling through the UC Berkeley campus, the Berkeley Rose Garden and the Downtown Arts District, head into the hills for an outdoor adventure in Tilden Park or cruise down to the waterfront park, where the San Francisco skyline sparkles across the bay.

I am a painter and photographer. I work as an artist by hire, meaning, I work to develop a piece of art for individual taste, not to say I don't sneak in a bit of who I am :) I am also a world traveler and therefore I appreciate the comforts and abstractions of one's home. Marina
