Small Business Saturday, Holiday Shopping, and a Collaboration with
Upcycled Skate Art
Ahoy lads and lasses,
Thank you to all that made it out to Davenport to check out Santa Cruz Open Studios! It was great to connect and reconnect with the Santa Cruz art community and get to show you all some of the work I've been doing out here.
I'd like to welcome the newcomers from Open Studios. Thank you for the support. I'm excited to have you on board!
Found Art Collective Holiday Pop-Up
I will be a featured artist at the Found Art Collective on Saturday, November 27th from 12-5pm in Scotts Valley. This is a great opportunity to get some in-person shopping done and save on shipping costs this holiday season.
With all the supply chain issues big box stores are having this year, there's no better time to shop local!

The holidays are right around the corner!
This is your reminder to start your shopping as soon as possible so I can get them to you in time. If you're interested in a custom order, I will be taking very few this year due to the high volume of requests. Each piece is handmade with care and can take some time so lets get planning now!
In other exciting news I have a collaboration in the works with Alex Wong of Upcycled Skate Art. Alex is a fellow artist from Santa Cruz who uses thrashed skateboard decks and trucks to create a wide variety of unique pieces; anything from jewelry to surfboards and tables.
In our collaboration, we are using old skateboard truck parts to cast an aluminum skull and integrating truck hangers as a metaphorical spinal column.
Keep posted for a possible show in the future featuring this piece and other related pieces by Alex and I.
