Emily T. Nielsen, founder of both Romantic Rock and Punk Rock & Paintbrushes says, “The Punk Rock & Paintbrushes community is looking forward to hosting our 6th annual holiday show this December. Coming back after two years, we are excited to host our highly anticipated holiday show and are more than ready to bring beautiful art to our community and to be benefiting amazing non-profits such as Rock To Recovery and The Alexandria House with the help of TUK Shoes. This year we were so grateful to publish our coffee table book and bring our story inside your homes… we hope that this holiday season we can share our stories even more in person on December 11 in LA.”
