Amy Sacksteder is the cool cool coolest, for reals. Outside of being what another friend called my "same sex life mate", ( I seriously love the shit outta the girl), she is both my neighbor (at home) & my neighbor at my shop downtown (her studio is across the street from my shop). An artist and art professor she is forever doing artist residencies in the raddest of places - this last time it was Iceland and dare I say you can see the influence the Icelandic landscape had on her artwork. I love it. Check out her site here.
Also, you can read an interview and sneak a peek at her jewelry collection (my personal favorite in all the land, honestly) at Jean Jean Vintage.
