2 idols

I've been lucky enough to meet both women. Kiki Smith is my all-time favorite artist and I literally almost crapped my pants when she complimented me on a sculpture I was working on in college.

To this day it is one of the highlights of my life.

Are you KIDDING ME????
I got to meet her while in college, briefly, she was visiting my professor. Kiki Smith was "supposedly" my Sculpture Prof. best friend (Phoebe Adams)...although, I think Phoebe totatlly bites off of her. Kiki is awesome!!!!

Oh how cool! She's very odd, isn't she?

My favorite piece was at Williams College in Williamstown, Mass. where she had a gigantic tree placed in the center of the gallery. She had loads of dead birds hanging in and scattered around the base. The birds weren't as impressive as the little sweaters she made for each of them. I fell in love with her then. She's just too cool.
