14 Apr Local Artists Turn from Cancer to Canvas
I had a great time working on the story Local Artists Turn from Cancer to Canvas for the April 2009 Noe Valley Voice. Both Nanci and Greg were so open with their experiences, from their illnesses and recovery to their current lives and artwork. It’s always a treat to get to meet people who’ve lived in the city for decades and can tell you about the businesses and hangouts that were there before the ones that were there before the ones that are there now. Example: Cafe Babar, where they met and where The Liberties now stands.
One thing I wish I could have included in the story, but didn’t: Greg once counted Janice Joplin as a neighbor.
