My photo
I'm an artist living in San Francisco, on a wooded hillside overlooking the Farallon Islands. Redtail hawks soar overhead and sometimes perch outside the studio window, and raccoons, possums and skunks are nocturnal visitors. And this is in the middle of the city!

Meeting an old friend, at last

After many years of email correspondence, I finally met German collagist and teacher Cordula Kagemann, who was briefly in San Francisco with her husband, Michael.

You can see Joan's elegant quilts and collages at, and learn more about Cordi at
