Laura Lamb Brown-Lavoie is a crazy good poet and friend who just performed on the finals stage at the Women of the World Poetry Slam in MN this last weekend. I made these portraits of her as an example of an alter-ego project I was doing for an illustration class I teach. AWoooooooo, wild animal.
Eyeball pattern I painted with gouache on canvas for a collaborative staff show at Providence ¡CityArts! Soon my co-collaborator will turn it into an insane creature.
I’ve been holding quilting bees for a community Quilt project that began as part of my show Precious Objects. Julie Warchol and I collected donated fabrics that I pieced together and am now inviting others to come help me quilt it all together with some wild, decorative embroidery. The bees have been super fun so far, they’ll keep coming until there isn’t any space left.
The facebook event(s) can be found here.
