In honor of the Year of the Rooster and all things holy let's raise some cash for worthy causes. 100% of profits from the sale of these linocuts will be donated to either the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) to protect our civil rights or NWF (National Wildlife Federation) to defend wildlife and nature. You decide or let me.
This 5" x 7" linocut features a loud and bold rooster printed in oil-based black ink. The blue background, red, yellow and orange details are painted in watercolor and acrylic paint. Each print is unique and none are perfect, just like life. You may or may not receive the print featured in this listing, regardless it will be quite similar.
What do you have to lose? Not only do you support a cause but you get an original piece of art that could very well bring you much luck in the new year (no guarantees).
STRIPE downtown will be hanging my mounted Stripes monoprints for the month of February. What a natural fit! Come on by the First Friday opening to say hello, check out the store and delight in one of the signature cocktails they offer.

Through July of 2017 the five branches of Santa Cruz County Bank are showing Color & Light
Color & Light brings together four area artists (including me) whose works explore the mercurial nature of light and color to convey emotion and delight the viewer. An ambitious exhibition of 98 works of art, spanning throughout the Bank's five countywide banking offices, Color & Light features two and three-dimensional works, including large paper and resin sculptures, glowing neon mixed media works, meditative oil paintings and colorful monoprints mounted on panels and framed.
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.
