Lauren Dyer is one of my new favorite artists. She recently put a few things up at Blissen and I've been going to gaze at them at least once a day. She uses wax and beads and wood and paper. I love the way the wax mutes the colors.
The only place I could find more works was at Fiber Arts Magazine (which is a really neat magazine, by the way. Check out the contemporary rug-hooking article in the same issue.)
