Sketching Mussels

Hello and Happy Spring! Thanks for visiting my website.

GOOD NEWS! Sonoma County Art Trails Open Studio WILL take place  this year: the last two weekends of September- note date change from October, which has become too fire-y the last several years. 

More info to follow, feel free to e mail me with the  contact link above if you have questions.

I am sketching every day, making new Fuji transfers, and working in my garden, very pleased to know that I can again  share the peacefulness and enjoyment of my garden and studio with others this coming September!

Please stay well and safe, enjoy the art on the site, and contact me if you wish using the button at top right.
