About the owner: I am a life-long Los Angeleno, artist, painter, and illustrator with a penchant for houses, history, butterflies, and beautiful old things. I love to restore derelict buildings and repurpose obsolete objects.
Why the Owner Chose Sylvia Park, Topanga, CA, USA:
There is nothing else quite like it, the opposite of the ordinary. It's fun. At least it was for me to create, and may be for you to inhabit, as well.
