Leisa,  Thanks for connecting.  No, the ear is not medical. . .this piece is about (and for) my son, Ky.  It is specifically about how I have been able to experience the world through him:  his interest in magnifying glasses to inspect small things, for instance.  The vine growing out of the ear (which was literally sculpted while I observed his ear) references the story that children are told when they swallow a melon seed--that it will grow inside of them, and possibly out their ears.  Hope that clarifies! Leah

Believe me, I do already!  (mix fibers in with my work)  Hoping to work this summer on a series of figurative hybrid doll-forms -- traditional textile materials mostly, with found and fabricated objects glommed on.

Hi, Lisa,

I love your work too (and envy your productivity!!!)!  Those embroidered birds are freaking amazing.  In my next life, I'm going to be a fiber artist!

Thanks for the friend request, ;]

Dear Leisa,

I was delighted to get you note that was filled with compliments of my works.

 I would like t thank you for the invite to your amazing exhibit of Fiber Arts creations.  You are a very dynamic and expressive artist.  I love your colors and admire the messages and the size of your pieces. I would love to visit your exhibits and hoping you will let me know where I could see your works.

Coming from the world of Woodworking (for 27 years)... precision is one of my strengths and it comes across in my paper creations.

I would love to stay in touch.

Bets regards,

Hi Leisa,

Thank you so much!  I am such a fan of your work too.  I absolutely love your installation work-the scale, form, and meticulous qualities are spectacular. And, wow, are you prolific! I would love to be involved in the exhibition and I am honored that you considered my work.

My email address is zettlesr@gvsu.edu

Looking forward to further communications with you.

Warmly, Renee

Thanks for getting touch, Leisa, nice to "meet" you. I would love to hear more about the Atlanta show.

Thanks for the kind words Leisa. I'm definitely interested in hearing more about the radical fiber exhibit you're curating...

Glad to meet you Leisa!  Your work gets my brain rolling. Your interactive felt boards are inspiring me:  http://whistlepigstudio.com/section/310559_West_Acres_Make_A_Monster_in_Action.htmlIt is a much more efficient solution for interaction and storytelling than the chalkboards I have been using.  Thanks for connecting!

Hi Leisa, Thanks for your compliment. Really like your interactive work. Seems like you have the same love affair with color as artists who enamel! Did you know Harlan Butt when you were at UNT?

I knew it was you when they said "our next caller is a Fiber Artist from Atlanta."

Thanks so much for calling in, that was really great. Thank you for the support. I heard from many crafthausers that they tried, glad one of us got through :-)

What happens when professional craft artists are allowed to let loose when they get to explore their mischievous and irreverent sides? Find out in this groundbreaking book, which, for the very first time, reveals an entirely different side of serious craft. Hundreds of images and essays from all over the world allow you to gain insight into the creative minds of contemporary artists like never before.

A variety of traditional craft media are shown, such as furniture, ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry, and metal, as well as a number of unique, nontraditional techniques. Even a bus shelter in London gets a creative make-over that is sure to make you smile!

The topics range from the playful to the serious, but the message is always most enjoyable. Humor in Craft is a treasure trove for craft aficionados and humor enthusiasts alike.
