Maker extraordinaire, Courtney sees books as objects to be read and re-purposed, candy wrappers as paper flower petals, toilet paper tubes as a menagerie of animals. She sees the potential in the discarded, history in the mundane and art in the everyday. She saves everything, makes anything and teaches from a place of passion and authenticity. Courtney believes everyone is creative and she’d rather spend an evening drinking tea and painting than doing anything else (except maybe scavenging treasures abroad).
Courtney is the author of Playing with Image Transfers, published by Quarry Books.
Courtney teaches at the San Francisco Center for the Book, Press: Works on Paper as well as other guest locations in the SF Bay Area and online at Creativebug.com. She studied painting at UC Santa Cruz and the University of Bordeaux in Bordeaux, France where she had her first exhibition and hosted many book making parties! In addition to teaching, Courtney is a freelance artist. She makes something everyday and works mostly doing windows, wedding installations and set design. In a previous life she did windows and display at Anthropologie as well as teaching and working at Paper Source.
