I came to LA from Ottawa (Canada), where I was born and raised, and became a postal worker out of high school. Rain, shine, or snowstorm, I delivered mail door-to-door for years before moving to LA to pursue a creative life in 2009.
From the moment I arrived in LA, it felt like the sun radiated everywhere I went. At that time, I just wanted to capture as much of that feeling as possible—a contrast from my life back home in Ottawa. The light thrilled my heart, and it still does to this day. Though I didn't realize it then, I was collecting moments and memories of what I saw around me. All the restaurants, beaches, palm trees— the sunset strip! It all felt so inspiring to me. Like I was soaking up this new world I'd dreamt about since I was a little girl, and now, finally, here I was, completely swept into this land where all possibilities seemed available to me. The energy felt so contagious it gave me goosebumps.
L.A. Story is a photographic journey through the city of stars scattered throughout a decade of my life. It is the result of listening to your heart when it tells you to leave home because, deep down, you know it's going to work out.
Hanging "Le Chateau" on your walls will surely transport you to the glamour and elegance of Los Angeles while still at home. The elevated vantage point of this photograph offers a unique perspective of the hotel and its surroundings, making it a one-of-a-kind Art print. The soft light and muted tones give it a timeless quality, making it a perfect addition to any wall. For me, Le Chateau has always been a symbol of Hollywood glamour.
Though my perspective has changed a lot since the days when I couldn't wait to attend parties and rub elbows with VIPs at this iconic location. This place still holds a very special place in my heart. Like so many iconic places in Los Angeles, it was a driving force behind my decision to move to LA and helped me see beyond my circumstances. To me, that's what makes Le Chateau truly iconic- it represents the dreams and aspirations that brought me to LA.
