My husband Bill & I, after years of hard work, were lucky enough to land in paradise! I am a retired University Art History Professor and University Museum Director who has held positions at three great institutions over a thirty year career. They were: Miami University, The College of William & Mary, and University of California, Santa Barbara. I am also a cancer survivor who has learned how to appreciate life. I now do art consulting, but my real love is making art and jewelry along with my husband Bill who is a sculptor. The historical research & writing bug never left me, however, which is why I threw myself into documenting the history of my community once I realized that nobody knew about it. I co-authored a history of the area entitled: Greater Carpinteria, Summerland, and, La Conchita. The book is available through Amazon and Arcadia Publications. I attended Buffalo State University College, Bowling Green University and earned my Ph.D. at The Ohio State University. You can learn more about me by visiting my websites:
Bill is a practicing sculptor of 50 odd years working in all the major media but concentrating mostly on wooden constructs using repurposed materials and the endless supply of driftwood from the LaConchita beach. Examples of his art are part of the art collection on display in and around Casa Makai including the guest apartment, a stone pond, garden shed, and signature wreath on the street facade . His work featuring many functional pieces like tables, chairs lamps and bowls are created in the garage/studio. He attended Bishop Noll HS, Hammond, Ind; Loras College, Dubuque, IA; The Art Institute Chicago ; Mexico City College; Ohio State University. In addition he has an active business carving Ice Sculpture for the SoCal catering and party market and owns the patent for a massage tool. His creativity extends to exploits in the kitchen to the delight of our guests.
Our home, known as Casa Makai, is one large art gallery. We have a complete guest apartment with a private bathroom, kitchenette and library/livingroom that we make available to family and friends. Bill & I also love to travel and have been all over the U.S, parts of Central America, Western Europe and Asia. Our mantra for living life to the fullest? Joseph Campbell said it best: "Follow your Bliss."
