Discovery: Lorien Stern
Ok, so as anyone can see it's been quite a while since I've posted anything on the blog. Sure, there are reasons like spending time on woodworking, doing production work and, um, spending more time on woodworking. But I'm hoping to slowly change all that and one idea I had brewing for a long time is doing quick profiles of artists and builders I've come across in person, through exhibitions and by pure chance. I love discovering new works of art and as a proponent and participant in the maker community, I enjoy sharing those new finds and bringing to light the stories that make these individuals tick.
Lorien Stern is an artist located in the Mojave Desert area of California specializing in painting and ceramics. If you watch the video on her profile you can see she has a carefree, almost whimsical, lifestyle that' reflected in her works. I'm probably gonna end up buying on of her wall-hanging sharks.
