MEET THE TEAM


OUR FOUNDER AND HER MISSION

​Whatknot Studios was founded in 2019 by Courtney Scruggs, a bronze sculpture artist from Santa Cruz, CA. She started this jewelry line as a way to make art more accessible. Unlike her bronze pieces, these tiny wearable sculptures are affordable for the average person while never sacrificing design and beauty.

MARKETING AND OPERATIONS MANAGER

Bryce Montgomery is a marketing genius and all around amazingly talented human. Along with being my oldest friend, Bryce has supported my work since I started creating art in high school. Bryce has been working at MAPS for the last 10 years, creating brilliant marketing content and raising money for such a great non-profit organization. I am so fortunate to have Bryce on my team.

You can connect with Bryce on LinkedIn.



 

ASSISTANT TECHNICIAN AND SOCIAL MEDIA GURU

​Sophie Northcott came to us at Santa Cruz Open Studios in October 2021 and has been a huge asset to the team. Her BA from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with an emphasis in graphic design and willingness to learn so many different techniques are a huge help in keeping things running around here. She is also an accomplished painter, avid surfer and lifeguard in the waters off coastal Santa Cruz.
