Over the winter I moved my studio to a new location within the same Workspace Limited building that I've worked in for seven years. Throughout San Francisco, many studio buildings like mine have been losing spaces and closing, so I'm grateful to be able to join the remaining Workspace and Mission Artists United artists this weekend in hosting Open Studios. Please read on for more details about where you can see my art in person and virtually, and catch up on the latest news about WOW! books and videos on lynda.

If you'll be in San Francisco this Saturday April 18, or Sunday April 19, from 2 to 6PM I'll be joining other Mission Artist United artists in hosting Spring Open Studios. I'll be in my new studio, which is still in the great old industrial Workspace Limited building, showing portrait drawings, collages, and new original digital works printed on fabric. (Please be aware that all Workspace artist studios are now up a long flight of stairs on the second floor.)
(even if you don't use Facebook).
If you're interested in helping to try to preserve studios and creative spaces in San Francisco, please ask me about the new Cultural Space Coalition.
