We stopped by on a whim. The art was lovely, the woodwork pieces were gorgeous. I found the perfect purse to bring home as a gift to my daughter. Pricey but lovely

Great art, original and prints. His stuff is all over town as well. Head down the hill for an amazing view from roadside benches if you've got a car.

A great opportunity to see a wonderful artist studio with a wide variety of painting styles. We saw some of his art (reproductions mostly) at other galleries in town. So glad that we went to see the original work. Definitely recommend.
