At the beginning of 2016 I relocated back to the Seattle area. I now maintain two working studios one in Seattle in the Ballard/Fremont neighborhood and the other in Burlingame, CA. I travel down to the Burlingame studio every other month to teach and meet with clients. The Burlingame studio address is 1777 California Drive, Burlingame, CA 94010 - Studios 7 Located in the Peninsula Museum Studios and across the courtyard from the Peninsula Museum of Art. The facility is a former office building which has been transformed into 30 artist studios. There is plenty of parking and the Millbrae BART / Caltrain Station is a few blocks away. The studio is 10 minutes from the San Francisco Airport and near accommodations and services.
