Santa Cruz Open Studios, October 2018
For our second time doing Open Studios, we submitted separately, by this time having a bit more experience and a larger body of work. Different themes started to reveal themselves for our work, yet there is still a lot of overlap in our emerging sensibilities.
Santa Cruz Open Studios, October 2017
This was our very first show! We submitted jointly — mainly because we had just started out and didn't have many finished pieces yet!
