Please feel free to e-mail questions or call me direct. My office/studio is an old bookmobile parked behind one of the buildings at Helping Hands School (where I serve as Chief Fiscal Officer and Director of Plumbing Problems). You may call the school line at 518-664-5066 between 8:30 am - 3:30 pm and one of my overworked secretaries will try and track me down. Another option is my studio line 518-664-6530. I'm in and out all day but the best time is 7:30 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. (if you miss me please leave a message on my answering machine with your name, phone # and best time to call, I promise to get back to you).
