San Francisco Bay Area

Before moving to France, I lived in the beautiful San Francisco Bay area. The best thing about California was there before any humans showed up. Even so, I was inspired by the semi-natural landscapes created by the very important agricultural  piece of the state’s makeup.

The seasons show themselves with subtle signs in that gentle climate, but I still thrilled at the first indications of Spring
