a sneak peek at the Holiday Sale!

Rene van der Spuy creates distinct eye-catching designs inspired by nature, travel and everyday experiences. Her original, limited edition prints (some black and white; others embellished with watercolor paint, paper or thread) are carved and printed by hand on a press. 

More recently she's  connected with her inner seamstress; making pillows inspired by her collages and prints. Screen printed with water based ink onto heavyweight 100% cotton fabric, she adds felt, buttons and hand-embroidery for a special touch.
Born and raised in South Africa, Rene has lived all over the world, from Australia to Brooklyn, and currently resides in Portland.

It's that time again!

Thanksgiving is officially over, and our local artists and makers have been working hard crafting beautiful things for the annual Holiday Sale here at Camp Cactus Studio.

I'm excited to share their amazing work, contribute to our local economy and help raise money for Oregon Food Bank.

Please consider that when we purchase handmade local goods, most of that money stays in our community and helps our local economy.

I've been hosting this sale in the studio since 1992, and I'm happy to say that over the years we've raised thousands of dollars to directly support anti-hunger programs here in Oregon.

I sincerely hope you can join us in our efforts to keep art alive and hunger at bay!
