HI! We are the two humans behind Cactus Planet, based in Tucson, Arizona.
CACTUS PLANET is the name of the brand that we created to communicate our artwork exploring color, fantasy, style, and medium. Original artwork and design, recycled fabrications and more. We do it all. Oh yeah, and a LOT of cactus.
WE BELIEVE THAT ART SHOULD BE AFFORDABLE AND ACCESSIBLE TO ALL. In the words of the late, great, Carrie Fisher:"I don't want life to imitate art. I want life to be art."
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US
CACTUS PLANET was first created in 2011, under the name of Addicted to Sunshine Designs. At the beginning it was all about experimenting and having loads of fun, creating artwork out of predominantly recycled and reclaimed materials. As we continued our growth as artists, it was important for us to explore how we could directly impact and support our community.
With time, we acquired A STUDIO at the WomanKraft Art Center, where we would later assume the positions of Executive Director and the Director of Exhibits. We expanded to work in areas including graphic design, offering commissioned paintings, hosting workshops and classes, and participating in local art exhibits.
