Rebecca Green

This morning, our darling Rebecca Green got up, made coffee, and got to drawing while still in her pajamas.

As an imaginative child, Green would play school, dentist, and grocery store. Her games of pretend have brought her to a career where creativity and make believe are essential.

Maggie Dimmick

This week’s artist, Maggie Dimmick, grew up in a house of bankers, where making art was considered making a mess. In fact, it was until her mid-20’s that Dimmick started to consider herself an artist. But from a very young age, the passion to create has always been a part of her personhood. As a textile artist, Dimmick uses only found fabrics and threads in her practice, drawing inspiration from color theory, and artists like Sheila Hick and Helen Frankenthaler.
