Tasha Cleaveland - Design Consultant
Tasha blends her love of photography and interior design into a full service experience for our Latitudes Family. Her previous work in professional photography gives her a technical perspective.
She received her AA in Interior Design, at F.I.D.M. in Los Angeles. Her outside work as an interior designer gives her a thorough understanding of the details of design and what matters most when selecting art for a home or business.
She provides consulting and digital previews of our art in your space by email, in gallery and on location for our customers who desire the extra mile.

Monica Alexander - Art Consultant
Monica's studies at the Colorado Institute of Art and experiences as a professional portrait photographer, graphic designer, patent illustrator and pre-press technician give her a practical understanding of the art world in many forms.
Her experience surviving and thriving after cancer shaped her outlook on life. It "made me more direct & honest, value every moment, and celebrate every win... even the small ones."
This translates into incredible communication and connection with our customers and team.
Monica has been delighting our customers since 2018.
A life long surfer, diver and former commercial fisherman, Steve Munch has spent his life in, on or near the ocean.
He was inspired to take photos in 2004 because of the imagery in his favorite surf magazines. Despite no formal training, Steve was determined to photograph ocean life as he saw it, and devoured the technical details of the images he loved, until he nailed the look for himself.
It is this unwaivering vision that allowed Steve to develop a style that is unique and captivating.
Stephanie received a Bachelors degree from the highly regarded Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara.
Decades of work for high profile and meticulous portrait clients refined her skill behind the lens.
She met her husband, Jim, who owned and operated a local professional photography lab, and her work here behind the scenes, gave her extensive technical knowledge of the printing world.
It is this unique combination of hands on work in both realms of photography, that shapes Stephanie's artistic eye.
Cali is the official greeter at our Ventura Gallery. She loves getting treats for showing off her tricks, but her favorite Latitudes activity is being the spotter on the boat when Stephanie and Steve are photographing out at the islands. She has a special talent for spotting dolphins and whales and her favorite spot is the captain's chair on the ride back in after a wonderful day on the water. She is our behind the scenes quality control expert, and helps keep everyone in line. Stop by for a high five and some fluff love next time you are in Ventura. Cali has been delighting our customers since 2014.
***We are heartbroken to have lost sweet Cali to cancer in 2021. She will forever be a special part of our lives. 💗
She has got some big paws to fill, but so far she succeeds in a quirky and sassy style all her own. We are so happy to introduce Coco, our sweet golden doodle who keeps us on our toes every day!
