March 2017 
World events have been quite distracting this past few months. While I prepare to dive back into a few exciting long-term creative projects, my studio time has recently focused on drawing, fabric collage on board, and an occasional poster for local or national Resistance (click to download and print Rise Up for personal use).
This weekend is Spring Mission Artists Open Studios in San Francisco. If you're in town please visit me in Studio #1 at Workspace Limited, Saturday April 1 and Sunday April 2, 12–6p. For those of you who can't visit in person, I'll be posting more studio snapshots on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Please scroll down for details on where you can see my artwork, find articles and books, and how you can meet me virtually and in person.
