My husband, Ian, and I built our dream home in Cambria after retiring from our careers in San Francisco.
After decades in my own business as a graphic designer & print broker. I now have a second career as a sculptor working in my studio at home. I am currently active with the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art Sculptors Group and have given much time to coordinate art exhibits and further the arts in San Luis Obispo and Cambria. I was born and educated in New York.
Ian retired from Information Technology, started a small business and now spends his time between "honey do" lists and creating fine art jewelry and objects from fused glass. He also volunteers on the local Emergency Rescue Team. He is an avid sailor and sort of fisherman. He is originally from Wellington, New Zealand.
We love to travel (most recently Merida, Yucatan), ski, cook, entertain, make wine, drum circle, spend time with friends and walk our lovely beach.
Our Airbnb space is a separate apartment. We will welcome you in and give any suggestions or recommendations you wish. Other than that, we will leave you alone and it is up to you if you want additional contact.
We live upstairs and are usually available to answer questions or help.
