About Me
I am a Visual/Conceptual Artist, University Professor of Design, Art and Visual Communication. I am also a curator for a local gallery here in South Pasadena. My studio is on the premises. The property is very centrally located, peaceful. A great place to relax and enjoy a break or concentrate on projects without interruption. My passion is travel, art and culture. I spend much time in Scandinavia and speak fluent Danish. Hvis der er nogen som kommer fra Danmark.. så kun vi godt taler sammen.. Dejligt!

It is a lovely place to stay, and the location is excellent for the Huntington and Cal Tech. Close to the Metro, a small downtown with restaurants, and really close to Trader Joe's for groceries. Highly recommended, and Victoria was a great hostess Excellent Anna Marie 12/14/2017 5:23:00 AM
I stayed in Victoria's cozy guesthouse for 5 months in late 2016 and early 2017. I highly recommend both Victoria as a host, as she is thoughtful, helpful and friendly and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable. The room is well-equipped, the lovely backyard is a nice place to hang out, and the location, near a hip South Pasadena town center, the Metro, library, etc., could not be nicer and more convenient. If ever needed, I would stay again without hesitation. Excellent David O 4/11/2017 12:25:00 PM
This is a wonderful place to stay. Victoria is a terrific host. Both the house and neighborhood are lovely, and everything is convenient. I would definitely stay there again, and recommend to people looking for a quiet [apart from charming wild parrots] place to stay and work. Excellent FakeCanadian 6/11/2015 5:41:00 PM
This was a marvellous base for four months at the Huntington, beautifully designed, comfortable, and peaceful. Everything you need is there. Victoria is an ideal host, helpful and unobtrusive, so that you feel welcome but also independent. There is a private entrance and use of the garden is a great bonus. And there is a friendly dog. South Pasadena is fantastic for visitors. You can walk to Trader Joe's, excellent cafés, restaurants, used book store and galleries while the metro takes you to Old Pasadena bars or downtown LA. The energetic can get to the Huntington on public transport although I had a car most of the time. I hope to return and I thoroughly recommend it. Thank you Victoria.

Victoria's studio suite was lovely: quiet, self-contained, and absolutely comfortable. It was conveniently located next to markets, restaurants, coffee shops, and a weekly farmer's market, yet was removed from the hustle-bustle of the main street. It was also an easy commute (by light rail/walk) to the Huntington Library. I stayed a month, and would stay there again. Excellent Kat 1/15/2015 11:52:00 AM
