Jewels on Orange County’s coast, Newport and Laguna attract throngs of holiday-makers. With so many great places to play, eat and shop, there’s something for everyone. It’s easy to stay on the surface, enjoying the hot spots, but there is more in these coastal towns than meets the eye. In this issue I take a deep dive into Laguna’s art scene, introducing you to a handful of very talented artists who produce a wide variety of unique and interesting pieces of art. Get to know a Newport-based interior designer, known and loved for her casual California coast vibe. I hope you enjoy The Artist Issue of The Loaded Trunk!
