If you are out and about in Santa Cruz this month try to swing by the Felix Culpa Gallery at 107 Elm Street downtown to take in 'Twilight Zone' - a show of prints by my fellow artists at the Monterey Peninsula College Printmakers from the 5th to the 28th. This thematic exhibit will feature a variety of printing techniques including drypoint, monotype and various methods of intaglio printmaking. The gallery will be open for the First Friday event, June 5th from 5:00 - 9:00 for our artists reception.
It should come as no surprise that my drypoint monoprint for this show is entitled 'Twilight'. Two plates were used, one as a monotype - first yellow then blue followed by a drypoint of the trees printed in a deep sepia.
For a few months a selection of my etchings and monoprints will be hanging in the Scotts Valley Library (251 Kings Village Road) in the show '100 Trees', a new installation of arboreal images. This is a beautiful space at accommodates art very nicely, many techniques are represented including printmaking, painting and photography.
The show includes the work of artists including Aaron Johnson, Alon Brandman, Jared Roth, Jill Faragher, Joao de Brito, Dee Hooker, Mary Offerman, Sara Friedlander, Tom Killion, Rhea O'Neill and myself.
All the art will be hanging in the library until July 26th, 2015 so you are welcome to visit whenever the library is open.
Welcome. For the past nineteen years 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.
