Art in Action Schedule:
March 7: Kathy Hallinan
Kathy Hallinan learned her leathercraft from her mother, one of the original street artists in San Francisco. She dyes, patterns, punches and cuts her own leather to create beautiful, handmade baby booties, hair clips, bracelets and more. She has been designing and selling her leathercraft items for over 40 years.
March 14: Mara Murray
Mara Murray started designing her own unique hand-made ZOOMEEZ animals, dolls, pillows and accessories in 2008. To create her artwork, she uses colorful fabrics, recycled jeans, and trims. Each ZOOMEEZ has its own personality and spirit, one of a kind creation for the inner child in us all.
March 21: Jenifer Martinez
Jenifer Martinez and partner Stan Chiao work together to create a line of whimsical t-shirts featuring Jen’s original cartoon stick figure artwork. The t-shirts are sold side-by-side with their unique line of Steampunk jewelry made from stainless steel chain maille accented with recycled keys, clock parts and recycled materials.
March 28: Simone Guimaraes
Simone Guimaraes creates her artwork in a very organic style by using different media, bright, exciting colors and upcycled items. Her cat paintings are created using recycled San Francisco maps and acrylic paint. Each one tells its own story and finds their new owner, with a smile, all over the world. That is what her artwork is all about.
