"Remembrance: A series of works on resin coated handkerchiefs by Michelle Stitz"
Michelle Stitz is a local Santa Cruz artist working in a technique she developed and named "oil in resin". The medium is surfboard resin (a special version she has custom made) and her technique involves adapting paints and solvents to "take" the resin as it dries and in between the layers. Stitz creates mixed media resin paintings of all sizes for galleries nationwide including JulieBakerFine Art, Nevada City, and Bryant St, Palo Alto. She has also been fetured at several national and international gallery expos in NY, LA, Palm, Springs, Scottesdale, and Chicago. On the side, she also creates jewelry with the same "oil in resin" method and sometimes recycled fashion/ wearable art.. Her most recent jewelry pieces are tiny miniature oceanscapes painted directly on a penny!
Stripe will be featuring Stitz fine art wall pieces as well as her jewelry line this December!The Penny Ice Creamery is the only ice cream shop in Santa Cruz making delicious ice cream completely from scratch in house. Our rotating flavors feature local, seasonal, and organic ingredients. Located at 913 Cedar Street, Santa Cruz, CA, 95060.
