Steve Emery grew up in Fairfax and currently lives with fellow artist and wife Kathleen Lipinski in San Anselmo. He loves taking part in groups helping to
nourish the artistic community in Marin and has been hold-
ing open studios here since 1979.
Emery points to outer space as inspiration for this piece:
“This painting began inspired by the rings of Saturn. I have
always loved photos of/from space, and this spot along
Highway One, along Bolinas Lagoon, seemed to evoke

Miller, a native San Franciscan and recent ransplant to Tiburon, loves to paint with er camera. Rather than produce a crisp
image, she seeks an impressionistic quality, a soft,
fluid effect that evokes a mysterious narrative.
This image was shot before a Thanksgiving dinner in Huntington Beach, where beach days can
happen even in November. “I like the unintentional
artistry of daily occurrences, the seemingly banal,
unintentional, transient, that can become poetic, or
poignant,” she says.
