I bought the latest issue of my favorite craft mag- FIBER ARTS. This issue features some amazing Female artists (Lousie Bourgeois, Jenny Hart--) and my favorite Whitney Lee. I first heard about her from my friend Amy Lou's blog. Lucky for me I'm headed to Chicago where Whitney's new work will be displayed throughout the fall. Her latch hook work portrays sexy 70's style ladies in organic fantastic envrionments. Her psychedelic colors (lime green burnt orange and magical plum) seem to burst from the busts of these women. These women who seem so confidant in their sexuality are the product of many feminist classes and women's studies. I was surprised to see that she hails from Columbus Ohio originally- my college town.
