Greetings Everyone

You know one of the things that I love about collage is that you can combine images, texture and paint to create the landscapes of your imagination.  

This weekend I invite you to step into my creative world at the Colony of Coastside Artists Open studios. The Coca Open Studios features 13 different locations from Half Moon Bay to Montara and is a unique opportunity to talk directly to each individual artist.     Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 4pm I will be at Patt Sheldon’s studio at 238 Palma street in El Granada.  Between the two of us,  Patt and I will be offering a wide array of gifts items from fiber arts and jewelry to mixed media, collage, and assemblage.  All special one of a kind items at reasonable prices for holiday gift giving.  This holiday season to show our appreciation for our customers both Patt and I will be offering a free gift for any purchase of $50.00 or more.  Maybe a little something special for yourself?

This year instead of going to a hectic overly crowded mall to buy a gift that a hundred other people will buy as well ; come to the CoCa Open Studios. There is no entrance fee; you can relax and unwind in a beautiful setting; you can eat and drink your way while visiting each studio and purchase  truly unique gifts directly from one of the talented local artists.   Not only will you be getting some of your holiday shopping done but you can have fun doing it! And an added bonus is that you will be helping to support local arts and artists.

 What could be better?

For a map and listing of all studio locations you can go to the Colony of Coastside Artists web site at  New this year CoCa now has a scanable square so that you can get the Open studio map on your smart phone!   Also all studio locations will have a brochure with the map available. 

If you have any questions please feel free to email me at



See you at Open studios!
