Melody Overstreet and I will be co-teaching a workshop at the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History on June 16th on seeds! This workshop will offer hands on-experience with seed saving and an opportunity to explore the life cycle of select native plants through art. Each participant will have an opportunity to silkscreen print a seed-collecting bandana with an illustration featuring four local native plants. Registration is through the museum’s website.
I would like to share with you that I will be showing work at Stripe Men in Downtown Santa Cruz for the month of December. There will be an opening reception this upcoming Friday, December 1st, from 5-9pm during the Santa Cruz First Friday event. I have been working on some new cyanotypes this year that I am excited to share. During the evening the store will be donating 10% of sales to the Homeless Garden Project. My friend Coco will also be there on Dec 1st for the Stripe Pop Up with her beautiful handmade ceramics. If you are around I would love to see you there!
I will be partaking in the Santa Cruz Open Studios Art Tour this year along with Melody Overstreet. We invite you to join us from 11:00 am-5:00 pm this upcoming Saturday and Sunday, October 8th and 9th as well as the following weekend, October 15th and 16th. I will also be demonstrating relief printing from woodblocks on a small press during both Sundays.

There will be light refreshments, and good music in the air. Come join us at the Big Yellow House and take a gander at some art!
I will be having an art show in July at the Gospel Flat Farmstand Gallery in Bolinas, CA. I am excited to be showing some cyanotypes and drawings that I have been working on this year in such a great space. There will be a reception this coming Saturday, July 2nd from 4-8pm. There will be some food to nibble on and live music featuring The Gospel Flatters, Jeff Manson, and Alex Bleeker. The show will be up from July 2nd through August 5th. More than a stones throw from home for some, but a beautiful trip to make. Hope to see you there!
