Many people flock to Miami during the winter months to escape the cold. For James Deering, Vizcaya was home away from home. Built with the help of his friends and 1,000+ workers during the early 20th century, the Renaissance Italian and French influenced architecture and gardens make for a transformative experience.

A lovely park along the bay in the Mimo area of Miami. Lots of open spaces, enormous mature banyan trees that provide lots of shade and a creek full of crabs and little creatures that scurry about. Plus it has these amazing trees that appear to also be part vine. They are pretty magical looking, full of texture and great for art inspiration.

Simply the best way to get around Miami. You see more, you smell more, and if you're lucky enough to have a boyfriend that drives scooters like I do, you can ride on the back and take some really great video footage.

If you're an artist interested in texture and detail this place is a goldmine. My favorite thing about Miami might very well be all of the plants that grow here and Fairchild showcases them in the best possible way.

Had a quick stop over in Miami en route to Mexico, and I knew the perfect place to go- The Wynwood Walls. Graffiti art has become quite a fixture in our modern day cities and it's been fascinating seeing more graffiti artists showcased in museums and galleries around the world. Coming from LA I see quite an array of artists in the city as Los Angeles is such a creative mecca for artists. Having said that, with all of our painted walls and exhibitions, Wynwood Walls is definitely one of the best spaces I've seen showcasing street art. All the walls are flanked with beautiful murals, painted by some of the world's leading street artists like Shepard Fairey, Tristan Eaton, and Audrey Kawasaki. Besides being a photo-op hot spot, it's also a very relaxing environment with plenty of spaces to sit and relax in while enjoying the artwork.
