Just before the pandemic, I had been taking classes and developing recipes in preparation for opening a vegan restaurant. As I age, I want to change careers to something meaningful and easier on an older body. At that time, I was still very busy with murals and faux. As the pandemic raged, my decorative painting business came to a halt. Also, I realized how vulnerable the restaurant business can be. I had also been working on a few pieces of furniture made from used and discarded materials. While I believe veganism is great for the planet and prevents so much suffering, I also think reusing, reducing and recycling are as important for a sustainable future. With the support of my sole investor, Anthony Francis, I have been able to build up an inventory of furniture. This year studiosandi will be participating in the Silicon Valley Open Studios. We purchased the half page ad, a copy of which is posted below.
