Chances are you live a stone’s throw away from a Thai restaurant in your neighborhood, and you’ve got a go-to local favorite for pad thai. These days I often find myself traveling north of Berkeley, where there’s quite a few wonderful Thai eateries clustered in Albany, El Cerrito and San Pablo locales.
Lila grew up in Berkeley and is now studying Visual Art at The University of British Columbia in Vancouver. She has an eagerness for adventure which has led her from the top of half-dome in Yosemite National park, to a shower-less one month while sea kayaking around south-east Alaska to sorting almonds in the south of France. These journeys have inspired much of her work as an artist and satisfied her desire to be outside. Lila enjoys working in a variety of mediums such as drawing, photography, sculpture and print. She sells “I love kale” shirts to local Bay Area and Vancouver enthusiasts. Check out more of her work at http://lilavolkas.wix.com/artist.
