ABOUT

 

ARTIST, AUTHOR, COLLABORATOR

Courtney is an artist, author, and collaborator working out of Oakland, California. She’s authored 5 books with Quarto Press and Abrams, which have been translated into Italian, French, German, Spanish and Chinese.

Courtney started teaching in college by holding impromptu bookmaking parties with her friends. She moved onto teaching formal workshops in her early 20s at Paper Source and the San Francisco Center for the Book and never looked back. She currently teaches workshops all over the country and online at Creativebug.com where she is Editor-In-Chief.

 

Courtney held her dream job, creating displays and installations for the clothing store, Anthropologie, before moving into doing similar work in the wedding industry and then later translating those same skills into set design for Creativebug, which she continues to do today. 

In 2016, she realized a lifelong goal of opening a retail space. With her friend and fellow artist, Christina Diaz, they opened Long Weekend shop and gallery in the Bushrod neighborhood of Oakland. The shop specialized in curated home goods, creative supply and things for an excellent long weekend. It was a community hub for artists and folks in the surrounding neighborhoods. LW hosted over 20 art shows in their 4+ years open. In 2020, due to the uncertainties created by the Covid pandemic, they closed Long Weekend permanently.

In 2019, Courtney released her first fabric collection under the Anna Maria Conservatory line with Free Spirit Fabrics. She went onto create a second collection in 2020. Both collections depict Courtney’s painterly styles with loose figures and florals.

Her work has been featured on Oh Happy Day, Design Sponge, the SF Chronicle, Instagram, The Jealous Curator and BuzzFeed among others. She live in Oakland, California with her partner, her daughter and her rescue pup Charlie. She makes something everyday and can be found on instagram as @ccerruti.
