Been busy in the studio with weekly workshops for groups of folks coming out to help with the Quake Mosaic. Here are some shots of some of the creative volunteers who've contributed in the last month:

The community response to the Napa Quake Mosaic has been phenomenal in so many ways! I am beyond grateful to so many people who have helped bring this project to life. Here are just a few of the incredible folks who've made this project happen:

Giada and Lori Parise: This mom-daughter powerhouse team has been helping all summer with all the studio work!
