Michelle Stitz is a Santa Cruz artist working in a technique she developed and coined “oil in resin”. The medium is surfboard resin (a special product she has custom made) and her technique involves painting in between and inside the resin, and chemically adapting paints, waxes, alkyds and solvents so that they will fuse with the resin instead of resisting it.

Stitz creates mixed media resin paintings for galleries nationwide including Bryant Street Gallery, Palo Alto. A few times a year, also creates limited editions of jewelry with the same “oil in resin” method. Some of these are tiny miniature oil paintings of the coast painted directly on a penny.
