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.

Artist Statement

Bio & background

merch. (gifts, etc.)

Shop for P.O.D. "print-on-demand" items with my images at Zazzle --Woodpecker puzzle or 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. (Printful claims they offer more sustainable products, so I am building a shop there, after reading a blog on such concerns and trends.)

Most of the above is P.O.D./made to order, although I also have a small inventory on offer during Open Studios.

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

And many of my images can be printed onto other substrates: canvas, metal, wood, archival paper, via the above P.O.D. links.

orders and commissions

Undecided? Try a free inkjet postcard-sized copy of my artwork to try out at home, postage paid!
