Have you visited Tinker Studio yet? It’s a beautiful boutique art studio tucked into the building at 13795 Seven Hills Road on the Old Mission Peninsula.

Last night, Tinker Studio hosted a lovely reception featuring the work of four talented women on the Old Mission Peninsula:

  • Pam Prairie – Drawing/Soft Pastel
  • Mary Shultz – Watercolor
  • Kathy Obrecht – Pen & Ink & Pastel
  • Judy Pohl – Mixed Media

“It’s very rewarding for me to see the work they’ve accomplished in not a lot of time,” says Mary Kay Burbee, who owns Tinker Studio with her husband Rick.

The four women recently studied with Mary Kay, who offers her own classes, as well as workshops with guests artists such as the upcoming October workshops with Heidi Reichenbach Finley on marbling and acrylic pour techniques.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
