In March of 2013 I moved my studio from Redwood City, CA to the Peninsula Museum Studios in Burlingame, CA. Here are a few photos of the art/studio center before and after construction of the space. It is divided into studio space for 30 artists.

The studio address is 1777 California Drive, Burlingame, CA 94010 - Studios 7 & 8 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 28 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.
