When Hermosa Beach artist Maggie Lochtenberg posted a photo of a mural she created for a business in El Segundo, it caught the eye of Nicky Rising—a design showroom owner who lives in Redondo Beach. Turns out Nicky’s daughter, Haley, went to school with Maggie at Mira Costa, and she was impressed with the young muralist’s talents. She commissioned Maggie to create a mural on her Melrose showroom, Nicky Rising Ltd., for the LCDQ Legends design event that happens each spring.

“Nicky and I both worked with interior designer Jessica Ayromloo, who did the window displays, to come up with a take on a de Gournay wallpaper design for the exterior of the building.” The result is a pink and palm palette that’s sure to capture more than a passing glance to those lucky enough to drive by.

In addition to mural commissions for both businesses and residents, Maggie paints oil on canvas and plays with mixed media, photography and writing. You can follow her on Instragram @mloch_art.
