i had the privilege of sharing a textiles-based show with this artist, which was an awesome surprise because i had already discovered her work online. the show was called second skin and was held at new hope arts. unfortunately, i didn't get to meet her, but i did get to see two of her shoe pieces in person, which is way cooler than looking at images...see more here.
