I bought it for a gift, because I don't play, but it's cool enough to add to my collection of picks I've gotten over the years from shows. It even came on a cute card. Guess I'm buying my son regular picks.

About

The Story of Vanja (sounds like Vonya) & her art

I am a musician and artist based out of Los Angeles, CA.

I've been making things for as long as I can remember.

Around age 6 or 7, I took art classes from Mrs. Jenner.
I enjoyed going to her house once a week and worked with chalk, acrylic - all kinds of fun stuff.

At age 10 I started making greeting cards with rubber stamps.
Always the entrepreneur, I was quick to make a business out of it and sold custom greeting cards to family and friends from age 10 to age 16. I remember my biggest order was a $400.00 order for some very elegant Christmas cards. Not bad for somebody who isn't old enough to drive.

Once I got a laptop, I started moving onto things like Photoshop.
My digital art started happening, and I made a collection of drawings that I call "Sugar Coated Truth,"

I went to school for Theatre, and learned to do music around age 16.
My love of music has continued.
Currently I am in an independent garage rock band called Little Dove.

Most recently, my passion has been refinishing furniture.
I sort of stumbled upon it - growing tired of all the terrible furniture out there and not being interested in buying anything from Ikea, and finding the selection on Craiglist equally discouraging.

Thus, www.Reclaimed LA.com was born.
I sell furniture made from solid wood.
I sell it unfinished, ready for you to paint or stain on your own,
and I also can paint or stain it in the color or unique distressed finish of your choice.

In addition to this, I've also started doing painting - I like painting geometric stuff, and enjoy using bright colors.

Your purchases help me continue to do music and art for a living.
Thanks for reading!
