October, 2019: Thanks to all who visited my Open Studios on Oct. 26 and 27! ArtSpan organizes art events throughout the year, and for decades has held its traditional, city-wide San Francisco OPEN STUDIOS, when they display examples by many of their participating artists at SomArts Main Gallery, every autumn.
Taking precautionary measures during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020,
ArtSpan successfully launched an online version of the event. (As a
visitor, I appreciated how it all came together so well.)
Please do visit my ArtSpan artist page at any time!
Bio & background
Shop Print On Demand items with my images at Zazzle --NEW: Woodpecker puzzle (temporarily sold out), Mouse in its own box puzzle (a GREAT gift for quarantining, with a special 15% off using code NEWYEARPLANZ), Hummingbird on rectangular glass trinket tray, Orchid on square trinket tray-- Redbubble, and Cafe Press. (If you prefer, 'though I get no discounts, I can order them created for you--just email me! Threadless and Printful claim they offer more sustainable sources, so I am looking into that. Here's a blog explaining such concerns, trends, etc.)
I have also made some items by hand, which you will not find in any stores; some are listed below.
Although my inventory changes, here are some examples of what's often available:
Also available: made-to-order, hand-crafted inkjet copies of my original art, which I mount on wood panels (complete with hanging hardware), and cover with encaustic wax. Prices range from $60 - $100, depending upon sizes. They look very much like originals!
Ask me for a free inkjet postcard-sized copy of any artwork you like, to try out at home for a while—postage paid!
Some other versions of my original artworks can be printed onto canvas, metal, wood, or archival papers. You may order these for between approximately $50 - $150 (shipping/handling TBD).
Inquire via e-mail (below) by entering "ART ORDER" in the subject line, so that I can locate it quickly.
