NEW Framed Prints!

Whoops, I completely lost track of time yesterday, working, arting, etc. Fun stuff over in our shop: ready-to-hang framed prints! We’ve been collecting vintage and antique frames for a few months. We pick out our favorites, clean ’em up, possible paint them, and match them up with a print. The results, I think, are fantastic!…

Shop Update

Just to let you all know, the shop is back and open! What’s even more exciting is the new matted prints! We’ve had a real blast picking out beautifully textured paper that really makes the prints pop! We currently have 3 large (AIFOL, Follow Your Bliss & Explore, Dream, Discover) and 1 small (Watercolor Owl)…

I’ve been working on this new series for over a month, and it’s been really great seeing where it’s going. We acquired a number of old, forgotten landscape paintings, knowing that I could find something fun to do with them. At first I was just painting them, but I felt like something was still missing,…

Live Out Loud – Orignial

There’s a few fun things coming to the shop this week! Posted this to Etsy Friday evening and forgot to mention it here. A fun peek into the original drawing that is the base for one of our most popular prints. While some of our prints are created entirely in the computer, a lot of…

Let’s Art Party!

I think we’re finally far enough that I can officially announce Jack and my newest project: The Santa Cruz Pop-Up Art Party! The idea is to have a mobile, locals, ever-evolving gallery. We have couches, tents, rugs, music and, of course art, and are able to have a “pop-up” community space for couple of hours…
