My Creative Nest Studio

Welcome to My Creative Nest Studio in Santa Barbara, CA!

About Me

Hi, my name is Darcy and I wanted to create a peaceful, inspirational space where people could come and take workshops from instructors in the mixed-media field. A space where people would feel safe and nurtured and be able to create from the heart. It is a light-filled space with a beautiful butterfly garden outside and this space holds all things near and dear to my heart. Feel free to take a look around and I hope to see you soon!
