The Red Paprika in
Healdsburg, California, closes its doors.
With a sad heart, and much appreciation, I must report that the Red Paprika has closed its doors, and will take on a new form. I want to thank Bela and Judy Varga for giving me such a wonderful place to display my art! Many blessings to you as you begin new adventures selling wholesale to retail venues throughout our area!

My Studio - A work in Progress
At the end of 2008 I took on a major challenge for me - the renovating of one of our extra bedrooms into my art studio - which I did myself. The room started with white walls, and beige carpet, and ended up with Venitian Plaster walls and tile floors. I made a desk insert for the closet and a table top to fit on top of a futon-bed chest. With these work surfaces, along with my easel and storage, I have a functional, though somewhat cramped work space. Take a look at a bit of the renovation process...
