North Coast Open Studios

Saturday & Sunday, June 4-5 and June 11-12, 11 am to 5 pm

Old Purple Thumb Works

Old Purple Thumb Works is home to Meer Image rubber stamps, my animation studio, an Airbnb, my zoetrope, a home brewery, and lots of life drawings. My new film Boomerang will be on the big movie screen by request. I'll be open both weekends, and although I can't guarantee a rainbow, I do plan on coming in early to bake fresh cookies. Check out the other art studios that will be open at
