About this blog

PARIS, LA blog is about the magic accidents of life. It’s about artists, writers, photographers, musicians and designers that cross our mind, and our heart for a day, a season, a life!

Joshua Tree National Park is a […]

Ford is a sculptor who has been active in the California ceramics scene since the 1950s. Her clay forms usually take the shape of animals and plant life. In addition to her sculptures, I really […]
