About Us


Hi everyone!
We are the largest art colony in San Diego, called SPANISH VILLAGE ART CENTER, in beautiful, famous BALBOA PARK.
We are an aftermath of the Pan American Exposition...after the exposition, a stint harboring the army during WWII, the historic surroundings were morphed into a colony or village for emerging and seasoned artists.
We are: part of the City of San Diego; comprised of over 200 members; given membership through jurying 5 pcs of our art (jurying 2x a year); all members of san diego county. 
Our Spanish Village Art Center is a harbor for arts & crafts, where artists can actively create, demonstrate, teach classes, do outreach to various organizations, display their artwork, chat about their artwork and sell... contact me basketlai@yahoo.com

WHIMSICAL DOGS LOVE THE SMELL OF BACON!  Because I love dogs with passion, (I have 2 rescued hooligans) all I want to do is capture my love and fascination for them on canvas. Colors and expressions are what I use to evoke emotions with my doggies. In my studio, I have lots of different whimsical doggy paintings. WOOF! do not sit, do not fetch, be your own dog!


MADONNA AND BABY...every Christmas, as practiced as buying gifts for my family, I create expressions of Christmas! Because Christmas is about Mother Mary and Baby Jesus, I tried to express her essence at my skill level...hey! no laughing!...she is holding her suckling baby, while she lovingly gazes at Baby Jesus.  And, written on her and the Baby are lines of my thoughts concerning the love between a mother and baby....art can be communicated by image as well as words.... CHEERS! MERLOT ROCKS!
