About & Bio

SF Bay native, numerous hairpin turns, homes & destinations until landing in rural Mendocino County.. I wield shovels, drills, saws, paint brushes, pen/ink, pastels, graphite, pestle earth pigments, collect charcoal from fires, make resin from tree sap, do any number of things to bubblewrap and found stuff, and will research anything.
