Raven lived in San Diego, CA, until the middle ’70s.

She worked in various media, but preferred drawing with pen and ink. She died at age 23. This exhibition is a companion show to Visual Oasis: Works from Creative Growth, a survey of art on display in the CCAI Courthouse Gallery through Sept. 27.
