what makes us tick & how to find us

we are Louise Salter & Rya Kihlstedt.

think Thelma & Louise. Butch & Sundance. Bonnie & Clyde.


—  About

Salter & Kihlstedt are ...

...a smart, funny, charismatic, astute, creative problem solving duo. They like to tell and share a good story, a great visual, and a very cold cocktail.


SALTER is the artistic director of The Laboratory Arts Collective. She is also the Editor-in-Chief of their magazine. Salter produced and co-directed Twin Visions and received the 2016 Newport Beach Film Festival Award for outstanding achievement in filmmaking- short documentary. Salter likes nothing more than leafing through a thesaurus, cocktail in hand.


KIHLSTEDT is an actress most recently known for Amazon's One Mississippi, Ray Donovan, and Heroes Reborn.  She is an editor for The Laboratory Arts Collective magazines and member of the Echo Theatre Company.   A natural multi-tasker, often juggling a paintbrush and a half caff dark roast. 


Rya and Louise met in Lauren Canyon and have been partners in crime ever since.
