when nature fought back artist spotlight - lennard taylor

over the month of september and leading up to the big photo shoot for the when nature fought back collection, i'm hosting some guest spotlights with all the other artists who are collaborating with me on this project. they include fellow fibre artists, a photographer, a jeweler, and my models, and all have their own incredible art practices that i want to share with you all. starting on september 7th, tune in every monday and wednesday of this month to read about a different artist.

today's featured artist is lennard taylor, who has made some fantastically distressed jeans for the old guardian, petal pusher, and pierdras designs.
