Lisa Congdon’s work at Chronicle

Chronicle writes on their blog:

Chronicle Books is lucky to work with some of the most talented and original artists creating work today, and in this case some of the nicest. As a fan and friend of Lisa Congdon I was thrilled to hear we would be publishing her work. Lisa is a self-taught artist and illustrator who didn’t start making art until the age of 33. Her work is vibrant, fresh, and provides a unique look into the natural world.”

Must-have (or must-make) Ladies’ Tool Belts

Great stuff. Found on etsy. I made tool belts for the studio ladies for our NYC trade shows. One of these days I’ll blog them. Anyway, tool belts are a great way to sew something easy, super-useful, and fun to accessorize. I’ve put pompoms, buttons, ribbon, etc., on mine.

A lovely piece Diane Bigda did for Organic Beauty Magazine

Check out Diane’s:
-colors
-ability to created a setting that you want to be in
-the texture of the paint in the bath
-all the little details

…and this is why Diane gets so much work.

I always tell Diane, “I want to climb into your art and be there. And I want the clothes”. Ok, no clothes in this piece, but go look at her work and see the clothing.

Lisa Congdon’s booth at Renegade Craft Fair

Lisa writes:

“Hi Lilla,
I wanted to show you a photo of my Renegade Craft booth, photo attached (I shared a booth with my ceramicist friend, Diana Fayt). Chronicle Books was a sponsor at the event and did two separate signings with me where people came to get their products signed by the artist. The fair was super fun, and I had incredible sales and I think the exposure was really fantastic.

Cheers,
Lisa”
