Meet this week’s Featured Artist

Welcome to our Newest Artist

For many years now, the Santa Cruz SPCA , a non-profit and no-kill shelter, has been run from a small house built in the 1930’s. The roof leaks, the plumbing is problematic, and the original electrical wiring continually requires work.

     Staff members and little dogs greet visitors in what was once the tiny living room where desks are huddled between walls lined with dog crates. The tiny bedrooms are now cat rooms and offices, and stacks of supplies overflow from every nook and cranny. The tiny bathroom is used for grooming and sometimes as an isolation room.

    Yes, “tiny” is the operative word for the entire facility, including the dogs--the lack of space severely limits both the number and size of  animals that can be rescued, and they cannot accept big dogs.














This is the home of Santa Cruz Artists for Animals. 25% of our sales are donated to the Santa Cruz SPCA.

Artist, teacher and published author, current Executive Director of the Santa Cruz Art League, and winner of the 2011 Gail Rich Award for his work in the arts community, T.

"Taz", a monotype print of a handsome Doberman, by printmaker Susan Cartwright

Susan Cartwright brings new life to an art form first implemented in the 1600’s--the art of the monotype, a printmaking process which yields just one print.  Her charming miniatures are delicately drawn in ink on a copper plate, and printed on Oriental rag, or gold paper.  Welcome, Susan!
