the art of leann meixner
I thought maybe you'd like a little look at some new artwork that I just picked up.
You've heard me mention my friend Leann on the blog before. She's an outstanding artist. You can pretty much give her an scrap of fabric and a popsicle stick and she'll make you something really cool with it (like MacGyver but artsy and with blue hair).
She recently made a group of mini assemblages featuring her little stuffed and stitched friends for a show she and Joan did at The Liberty Street Brewing Company.
I got a chance to catch the show when it was up and it took me about a nanosecond to point out the two pieces up above and claim them as my own. The one on the right is living in my studio right now. Its a lovely rich red inside (my camera just wouldn't give up the color, sorry) and she's printed the word "strive" on it. Love that word.
The yellow one with stars is a birthday giftie for a friend and has the word "shine" on it.
Leann has assured me that she'll be posting her little boxes online in a few weeks and I'll be sure to let you know when she does. Her work is so special and I love all of it (was a miracle I only came home with two boxes to be honest).
