Central San Rafael studio near downtown, SF, Napa
Our lovely studio is a short drive (or walk) to downtown San Rafael, about 20 minutes from San Francisco, and about 30-40 minutes from Napa and Sonoma. We're located on a hill in a safe and quiet neighborhood with lots of trees and walking trails nearby. Please note: The road to our house is narrow and winding, but it's only 1/3 of a mile from Lincoln Avenue, one of the main streets running through San Rafael. There is plenty of street parking (no restrictions) in front of the house.
