When you see inspiration in everything, as does Courtney Cerruti, the overlooked and mundane become whimsical and magical art. Maker extraordinaire, Courtney may turn a discarded candy wrapper into a paper flower petal, or use old books and toilet paper tubes to create a menagerie of animals that come to life from the repurposed paper. She makes something everyday and works in many mediums.
Courtney studied painting at UC Santa Cruz and the University of Bordeaux in Bordeaux, France. She has taught workshops throughout the Bay Area and abroad, beginning with many book making parties while in France. Believing that everyone is creative, Courtney teaches from a place of passion and authenticity.She offers classes at:
