All Hands On Deck - a fundraiser benefiting Arts Council Santa Cruz
Twenty local artists transformed skate decks generously donated by Santa Cruz Skateboards into one of a kind artworks to help raise funds for the Arts Council Santa Cruz County.

In March a call went out to Santa Cruz artists from the city's Economic Development Office which is producing an adult coloring book to promote our town. I learned that both images I submitted for consideration were selected for publication! My pen and ink drawings of of wildflowers (please note the ladybug) and the Mission Santa Cruz will be included in this fun project.
If you are tooling around Capitola over the next several weeks swing by Modern Life Home and Garden at 925 41st Avenue where a selection of my monoprints are hanging. The store has a great selection of unique, colorful furniture and home decor. The store is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 to 6; Sunday from 11 to 4. The Stripes and Linear series will be on the walls until May 31st.
Welcome. Since 1994 I have been enjoying creating works on paper including etching, limited edition prints, monoprints, monotypes, drawings and paintings.
Take some time to learn about the printmaking processes on this site through the pages scattered about. The more you learn about printmaking the more you appreciate the processes involved in pushing ink into paper. If you have any questions, custom art requests or comments please feel free to send an email.
Most of my prints are available for sale through my e-commerce shop at ETSY and to see what is happening in my studio you can follow me or find me on Facebook by searching for Stacy's Studio. Are you interested in learning printmaking yourself? Check out my Workshops page.
