Who Lives on Catalina? Portrait of a Painter

Los Angeles Tour Guests Meet Catalina Specialist

Artist Porschia Denning at work on Aurora Hotel mermaid muralWhen we are out with our private Los Angeles tour guests we often interact with the people we meet along the way.  Our guides encourage contact with the locals for our guests so inclined.  A private tour does not mean we keep our guests insulated from people and activities around them as we tour.  We recently met a lovely and talented woman while visiting Catalina Island.  Her name is Porschia Denning.  She is an artist enjoying life and work on an island so close (22 miles) and yet so far away from Los Angeles, Hollywood and Beverly Hills.  A classically trained fine artist and the talent behind many of the murals decorating the desert isle’s buildings she also assists from time to time the Santa Catalina Island Company as a tour guide, a perfect hobby for such a gracious and knowledgeable Catalina denizen.  Closeup of Aurora Hotel mermaid muralIn addition, Porschia teaches painting and entertains as a musician and singer.  We show her here working on a mural outside the Aurora Hotel on Catalina (and a closeup of the completed artwork).  If you are visiting the island, and we strongly suggest that anyone coming to Los Angeles make it a point to explore this wonderful place, be sure to look for or ask for Porschia to really experience the charm of Catalina.
