Art-Centered Community

I am the Vendor Curator for an incredible weekly event held by the non-profit organization, Greenway Arts Alliance ( The community market, Melrose Trading Post, is held every Sunday at Fairfax High School in Los Angeles, CA. The admission fee and vendor fees fuel our arts organization and provide much needed supplementary support to the Fairfax High School yearly budget.

The market’s vibrancy makes it very attractive to photographers, and I enjoy taking photos in the market of various vendors, musicians, artists, interesting finds and puppies. My photos, along with others' populate the MelroseTradingPost’s Instagram account.

Visit for more information.
