Artist and museum professional Leslie Grigsby shares with us her beading influences, inspirations, and accomplishments. Her stunning beaded sculptures require many months, sometimes even years to create. Join us as we dive into Leslie's collections!
On today's blog we have a conversation with artist Betsy Youngquist, whose work is a wondrous web of storytelling on loss, remembrance, and magic. Youngquist is a mixed media artist whose dazzling beaded creatures bring the fantastical realms of our imagination to life. Join us as we delve in with Betsy to talk about her pieces that she's been working on and the stories they create along the way.
Last month we featured a very small selection of our favorites from the Wings & Stings challenge prior to the final judging that will be announced by August 1st. We wanted to select some more pieces for you to take a closer look at for the month of July!
