I will be open for one of the two announced North Coast Open Studios this year. This will be the second weekend of June. I will be presenting some watercolors, prints, some textile pieces (scarves, small items, and custom fabrics) and miscellaneous bits. If you are interested in visiting with me at that time please stop in. There is some handicap access but most viewing of art will be upstairs in the main studio. If the weather is nice the garden will be worth a browse. It is mostly a naturalized combination of beds and rough pasture with a few paths carved into it.
If you have any questions on how to get here please call me on the office number 707-764-3877.
It is 1.8 miles up from the main Wildwood Avenue of Rio Dell on Monument Road. There will be a metal sign on the base of my mailbox post... 1961.
Please look at

Open Studio is from
June 8-9
Saturday and Sunday
11 am to 5 pm

Goodness,  a year has passed since I last wrote! It has been a busy year of travel, the birth of my first grandchild, and a good deal of projects on the studio's five acres. It seems a lot of my creative juices have gone to shingling the cabin/bath house, installing some art work into the garden, building vegetable beds, landscaping, and designing a beautiful woodshed using re-sawn old growth redwood.

But creativity takes all shapes and there has been new projects explored and begun:
a new printer for an in-house art and poetry book this year
painting and sketching using different mediums
planning an outdoor sculpture project that should be placed in the orchard ' 7 Torso's ' withn the next few years. This project will require some education on my part of casting torso forms and building the pieces from there.
