How are you, listeners?
Despite certain difficulties, I am here with another discussion as promised. If I sound exasperated in the interview, it’s because my computer froze during the first take…
Today’s guest is an old friend of mine, Jesi Evans. Our friendship is very much seeped in art—we met in High School art class, have shared interests regarding art & music, and have gone on to collaborate through our fledgling collective Hot Garbage.
Jesi is a Berea college grad that works primarily in fibers, with a special emphasis on embroidery. Jesi uses this rather ‘familiar’ medium to redefines craft for herself, as well as the viewer. The medium is familiar and welcoming to her due to a childhood full of projects with her mother & grandmother.
Her latest series of work delves into personal environmental concerns and the emotional response tied to them. The project is right now a work in progress, but you can get a peek at jesievansart.com. You can check out her past projects at her Cargo Collective site.

Till next time.
