About Mrs. Fishkin:
“The places I love most in San Francisco are a mix of old and new (or old and older). The city’s iconic landmarks are a part of everyday life for us lucky enough to live here… but we stayed for the burritos. The neighborhood gems featured in the series are my landmarks and the reason I’ve called San Francisco home for 20 years. This is the San Francisco I love.
I’m a graphic designer and artist living in San Francisco’s mission district. My education is in art and design from the University of Michigan and the San Francisco Art Institute. I’m a believer in sustainability and work with local small businesses and non-profits – all based in the Bay Area. My clients include Burning Man, Bi-Rite Market and the Women’s Foundation of California.”

We will have all of the San Francisco series available framed and unframed. As always we will have 10% off all art in the shop during the event, as well as drinks and treats. Come on by!
