About the artists
I'm a local artist. I have murals located in the Harp on Newport Ave. I absolutely love this town. And would love to brighten up our streets with some beautiful artwork. I'm also the drummer of a local band called SUEDE RADIO.
Thank you for your consideration
I have been residing in Ocean Beach for 27 years, painting for 50 giving lessons to adults as well as children throughout the community. I have given children with a need for art my art in their little hearts including many schools in OB as well as many underprivileged.
Jamie Hoffman is a visual artist living in Ocean Beach since 2020, and a San Diego native. He is known for his eclectic style and his work in a variety of mediums, including jewelry, pen and ink drawing, metal, resin, work, and paper crafts. His art is inspired by the natural world, a rainbow of glittery colors, and the people that make up the community around him. His work is intended to bring joy and happiness and is often commissioned to create "that think you just can't get anywhere else."

I am an artist living here in OB with my partner Diana. We are the owners of OBMG and the b Gallery in the Newport Avenue Mall. Art is a passion and has a purpose. The passion comes from the experience of life itself. The purpose can be many things, but one of the primary purposes of my art is to supply people with a memory of their visit to our community. A lot of my artwork ends up in the hands of tourists and ultimately on the walls of their homes. I imagine that years may pass and children and grandchildren may see these images. For some, it may be the memory of the trip to Ocean Beach, for others the memory of their parent's or grandparent's homes. These are special and important memories and I am honored to be the artist that brought that memory into their home.
Roberta lives in Ocean Beach with her family (photographer Christian Kelly, OBE student Finbar, and dog beacher Coda Koda). She is the studio manager of The Artist Outpost on Voltaire St. and teaches art to both kids and adults. When she’s not teaching or playing with her family at Life Guard Tower 5, she paints portraits of Ocean Beach landmarks and families with a focus on daily life.
I am a Magical/Fantasy style Artist based out of Ocean Beach.
My main medium is Acrylics, but I have been recently taking up mixing with oils and digital as well.
I have done a few murals around San Diego, and love teaching Acrylic Workshops and after-school art classes.
I believe an image holds the power to shift the perception of an individual, therefore having a knock-on effect on the outer manifestation of the collective consciousness.
