about me

Hi. My name is Carol Es (my website) and I am an artist from Los Angeles. I grew up here and have lived in pretty much every neighborhood LA has to offer. Contrary to what outsiders think it, it is a beautifully vibrant place, filled with the most interesting people on the planet.

I have lived in northeast Los Angeles since 2008 and I love it here. I am close to Highland Park and Pasadena, and everything in between.

I live with my partner, mjp and our little dog Gemma. We are a happy family, but the three of us are rather recluse.

You have reached my blog where I write everything from the goings on in my art studio to, at times, my personal tragedies. I am pretty candid and sincere and have kept this blog going for a lot of years now.

I also keep two other blogs. Yes, two. One is for something called the Exodus Project, which is an ongoing art project that grew out of my love for Joshua Tree. The other blog is centered around the memoir I’ve been working on for almost seven years. It is called, Shrapnel in the San Fernando Valley. I do not have a release date for its publication at this time, but I finished the final draft in November of 2016.

Please sign up for my mailing list to get my newsletters. It’s different from the blog. I send it out seasonally, so you won’t get spammed out or anything.

Thanks for reading! 🙂

    Hey Carol,
    I see you’ve opened a studio in Highland Park and joined up with NELA art.

    I represent a local LA artist, Tim McMullen. We are having a show to display his work on August 29th in Eagle Rock. The show is called Art Between the Fences.
    I’d like to send you a flyer and politely request promotion for the event on your site. We’d love for you to attend the show and post a review on your blog. However, if you cannot make it out the night of the show, we can arrange a visit between you and Tim prior in order for you to view his works.

    I can provide further information about Tim or the show upon request.
    Thank you so much in advance for your help.
