14 Canvassing and the BeaCh The opposite of the misunderstood, brooding artist stereotype, Pamela Hill Enticknap is sunny, upbeat, and loves live – all of which are reflected in her plump and luscious paintings. With a large canvas and vivid color, her bold brushstrokes capture the curves and angles of her subjects, who also are loving life. Her inspiration? Carpinteria—the town and its beaches.


High-end fashion has come to Carpinteria. Her name is Lola and she lives on Yucca Lane just off the beaten Linden track. Combining their passions for fashion and commitments to motherhood, three women opened Lola, a consignment store with designer name merchandise. But don’t get the wrong idea, there’s so much more to Lola than her goods.
