She had her Guido's for sale through the Salem Arts Association. She has a few more for sale at Crunchy Granola Baby. Sorry, no web site available yet. Maybe an Etsy shop soon???
Vase from Jonathan Adler for my cousin. Oh, how I love having a reason to visit the Jonathan Alder store on Fillmore. It was so difficult to choose, but I finally chose this one since I loved the combination of smooth and texture. If you are ever in the neighborhood please visit the store. There's always something new to see, and the people there are the most delightful.
This was a painting for my sister who has a strange obsession for Mexican wrestlers. If found this during the Renegade Craft Fair. The artist's name is Annie Galvin. She has the most amazing paintings. I first came across her while reading an interview of her on SFgirlbyBay. I remember most a photo of her paintings in a random, but thoughtful manner on a wall. My first thought was how strangely interesting each individual painting was.
