Twenty-three local artists were given a blank skateboard deck to decorate as they see fit, the boards are displayed at Radius Gallery in the Tannery for a month then are raffled off to support arts education programs!
This year I was inspired by California's super bloom of wildflowers so chose poppies and a native honeybee as my painting subject. Using acrylic paint, graphite, colored pencil and finally four coats of sealant I created this original mixed-media piece.

We adopted our darling lab Izzy through Golden Gate Labrador Retreiver Rescue back in 2009. To support the organization I am donating two of my recent drypoints featuring the pup sleeping, both are matted and framed in 8" x 10" birch. Both will be available at their auction coming up on June 4th in San Francisco. Click here to learn more about the event.
Swing by FLORA + FAUNA in April and May - I'll will be hanging a bright and colorful selection of my 'Buds' monoprint series along with my remaining Stripes!! Just in time for spring... these gorgeous, yet minimal peices are so sweet. Panels of these bud prints (5x5, 6x6, and 8x8) will adorn the walls of the shop.
Flora and Fauna is just inside Radius Gallery at the Tannery Arts Center, Santa Cruz, CA.

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.
