THE ARTIST

Crystal Contreras (@theircolors) is a self-taught lino artist hosting a live printmaking station inspired by all things Santa Cruz. Originally born in Watsonville, their work stems from a newfound appreciation of life in Santa Cruz formed during the pandemic. One of their biggest influences has been the lively artist community and vibrant nature home to Santa Cruz. “Printmaking Station” was offered in July 2022 and was so popular, we had to do it again!
