The Story of Laura TWO Tina
It all started with a humble postcard sent in the mail to one another. We met during graduate school at Goddard College and wanted to stay in touch in between the on-campus residencies. What followed was a correspondence project of art exchanged through the mail every week.
This was the beginning of not just a wonderful friendship and support network, but also a creative partnership. What we discovered was that we were learning from each other as much as we were learning from our professors. Through conversations, written letters, and creating art, we charted a course to better understand creativity, imagination, passion, and being women in the arts. We discovered that the areas around, between and within art are just as meaningful as the artwork itself.
We understand that community created through collaboration is a creative act in itself. Our mission is to expand our community by sharing our knowledge and experience of how to live a creative life with love and integrity.
This antique photograph of the two women we use as our logo was picked up at a garage sale and it just made us laugh! We tend to think of these women representing our best selves- carefree, open, vulnerable, and honest with each other. We understand that this is the heart and wisdom of our creative practice so we nourish and protect it for each other. While we enjoy the intellectual side of creativity, we also appreciate putting our feet up on the back porch with a cup of tea to just enjoy the day. These two women remind us to take it easy and enjoy the ride.
On our blog you will see us as teachers and students at the same time. With forty years of combined experience in the classroom and graduate degrees in Interdisciplinary Art, our intention is to share what we know while at the same time challenge each other and our readers to teach us more.
You are invited to follow along with us on this journey and become part of our community.
We will talk with you on the blog!
