October, 2019: ArtSpan organizes art events throughout the year, and for decades has held its traditional, city-wide San Francisco OPEN STUDIOS annually, over several weekends in the autumn. During that time examples by many participating artists may be viewed at SomArts Main Gallery, where a free art guide with maps can be picked up before going to visit the studios of one's choice. When the COVID-19 pandemic caused us all to quarantine in 2020, ArtSpan successfully launched an online version.

Please visit my ArtSpan artist page at any time!

Gifts and such

Shop for "print-on-demand" items with my images at Zazzle --NEW: Woodpecker puzzle; Mouse puzzle in its own box; glass key and trinket tray, or square key and trinket tray; lots of other stuff at Redbubble and Cafe Press. (Threadless and Printful claim they offer more sustainable sources, so I've been looking into that, after reading a blog on such concerns, trends, etc.)

Most of the above is P.O.D./made to order.

I also mount high quality inkjet copies of my original artworks onto wood panels, covering them with encaustic wax, adding touches of oil and/or mixed media over top, so that each one is unique.

Many versions of my art can be printed onto other substrates: canvas, metal, wood, archival paper via the above P.O.D. sites.

Orders, commissions, contact

Undecided? For a free inkjet postcard-sized copy of my artwork, to try out at home, postage paid, just e-mail me (below).
