We are super excited to welcome Rae to the shop for the month of September!
Rae Taylor-Burns is an artist and scientist. She is a PhD student at UCSC, and she works at the US Geological Survey studying climate change. Her inspiration comes from the ocean and the great outdoors. When not painting or drawing (or at work on the computer), she can be found in the clay studio, surfing her home break in Capitola, or in her garden.
All paintings are framed in reclaimed and salvaged frames and glass, brought back to life with a sander, elbow grease, and a lot of windex. All mats are from the leftover bin at Lenz Arts in Santa Cruz and resized to fit each painting. The result is a piece of local art for your home, framed in 100% someone else's leftovers.
You can follow Rae on Instagram @rae_paints to see more of her works.
