Artist Retreat – Book Your Stay
Artists, vacationers, or business travelers – come enjoy my artist retreat and working avocado ranch. Stay in a private, fully outfitted casita, enjoy the pool. Book your time online at the San Diego Artist Retreat in Fallbrook, California.
Relax and get away from it all. Solo, with friends, or plan a romantic couple escape, take in the nature and beauty. Artists, use the studio work space and/or take a workshop (workshop information) in the large air conditioned studio. Sunshine and quiet provide an experience that sparks and fosters personal creativity and provides for reflection and refinement of artistic work.
This is a great alternative to a hotel room – business travelers – instead of a mundane hotel room, enjoy a unique experience which includes living with art: a continually growing collection of original art embellishes the casita interior and retreat grounds and living among the avocado groves.
This beautiful, fully outfitted, air conditioned, vaulted ceiling luxury casita is your private oasis during your stay. It is a spectacular rural mountaintop retreat, gated estate on 4-acres, close to downtown Fallbrook in De Luz Heights. Relax on the private casita deck overlooking an avocado grove surrounded by gorgeous views, mountaintop breezes, and sunsets with starry nights free from city lights or enjoy a dip in the infinity pool.
Surrounded by beautiful mature landscaping dotted with the owner’s sculpture, the private, completely separate casita has brand new contemporary furnishings with a midcentury modern vibe. The skylight, open beams, interior window, barn doors, and other interesting architecture mimic that of the main house built by a well-known architect/artist. The casita has a private bedroom: twin bed that pulls out to a king size, a fold up desk, an en suite bathroom and walk-in closet; living room with a couch that converts to bed for one person; full kitchen with gas oven and range; dining table for 4; breakfast bar for 2; deck dining area with table and 4 chairs; TV; DVD player; Wifi; internet; A/C and heat.
Fallbrook is almost always sunny, and much of the time cool mornings and nights from the marine layer. It was founded in 1869, is known for its avocado groves and claims the title “Avocado Capital of the World.” It is often called or known as “The Friendly Village” so explore our small town’s agriculture and culture, shop in locally owned farmer’s markets, clothing boutiques, art galleries, antique shops, and enjoy our fine eateries, have a coffee or a high tea (complete with china, tablecloths, and a hat!). Hike nearby at the Santa Margarita river wilderness with 14 miles of trails (7 minutes) or climb Rock Mountain (14 minutes)!
Go wine tasting in town or nearby Temecula (30 minutes), or to the beach in Oceanside (35 minutes). There are great routes from the property through the neighborhood to walk, run, or bicycle.

Take a Workshop: Sep. 12, 13, 14, 2017
I have been asked to have my next sculpture workshop be teaching air-dry clay with the incorporation of found objects. It will take place at my San Diego Artist Retreat studio in Fallbrook next month (see workshop information and sculpture examples on Julia’s Blog). Air-dry clay does not require firing, is light weight, and allows a more versatile design as any material e.g., wood, plastic, metal, paper, etc. can be incorporated and an internal wire armature allows the sculpture to be easily posed in any configuration and wired to various objects. Students will incorporate their own found object artifacts into a one-of-a-kind figurative sculpture.
Contact Julia to receive a Registration Form. Receipt of a completed form and payment check will reserve your place in the workshop. Workshop Instructions will then be emailed to you. This will be a fairly small group, up to nine students for maximum one-on-one interaction. A number of spaces are already taken. When the workshop is full, you will be placed on a waiting list, notified of any cancellations, and be among the first in line for the next workshop. Call Julia if you have any questions at 408-395-3335.
As a medical device inventor and entrepreneur (inventing the tools that physicians use, www.MedicalDevice.com), Julia S. Rasor explores materials and often uses found artifacts in her sculpture that will both, convey topics she is passionate about and preserve time, resulting in a unique, expressive body of work (www.FineArtSculpt.com).
Julia merged her art and science careers – it not uncommon to see her fearlessly experiment with a wide range of media and subjects resulting in sculptures that emanate both dark and light emotion – Yin and the Yang.
Her sculpture series include world events (The Recession), the afterlife (Spirits), high fashion (Haute Couture, Dancers), and strange departures into the unusual (FractAliens). Her 12 exhibitions last year included Sparks Gallery, San Diego Botanic Garden, 50 to Watch, and a Solo Exhibit at Fallbrook Library. This year’s exhibits include Sparks Gallery, San Diego Botanic Garden, Encinitas City Hall Solo Show, and La Playa Gallery three artist show in La Jolla.
Julia founded the San Diego Artist Retreat in Fallbrook, an art immersion experience for artists, collectors, and visitors, where she holds workshops and studio/gallery tours, overnight guests can book a stay in the private casita (Avocado Ranch/Artist Retreat, Private Casita, Pool).
