Last Sunday was the 3rd annual Lily Sarah Grace Craft Fair in Los Angeles, at the Milk Studios hanger.

Lily Sarah Grace Fund raises money to create arts eduction grants for public schools all over the country. This year the space was filled with giant oragami cranes, and beautifully painted Manzanita trees that the children could hang their written wishes on ( think Yoko Ono wish trees ).

The day and the space were filled with creativity, beauty, giving and incredible generosity!

The kids had opportunities to make so many different projects, to visit, to eat great food, and get their hair done by Boyd  Tizenor !!!!

Amazing and and super fun. Jennifer Levy and Elizabeth Goetchius have organized this event each year so beautifully, and put their whole hearts into making it successful and memorable. This year Dewey Nicks did portraits on site which was fantastic addition to the experience and energy.

Karen Kimmel and Kimmel kids, Flowergirl LA, Catherine McCord of Weelicious, , Estee StanleyJules Blane Davis and many many others were all on site creating beautiful and fun experiences for the kids and adults who came out.

My heart was so full with the spirit of creativity and generosity that comes out in this event. I am grateful to be able to participate in what happens each year to help support this incredible foundation created by Matthew Badger to remember his three beautiful daughters, Lily, Sarah and Grace, and to remember them through all of the love and art that comes out of his foundation.

Kelly Lamb is multi-media artist, whose work spans across many disciplines, including furniture design, interior design, and fine art. She designs and manufactures all of her work including high end furniture in Los Angeles. All of her ceramics are made by hand on site at the studio.

I reached out to Kelly last fall when I saw her work in person. Her work is consistently strong and unique, which makes it incredibly satisfying to look at and really fun to photograph.

Like her work, Kelly is elegant and has impeccable personal style.

Lately I’ve been so inspired by the great, Irving Penn and his incredible Vogue covers from the better part of the last century, especially those which employed the silhouette.

So I set out to play in the dark with graphic shapes, beautiful faces, jewels and make something new.

Im excited to share with you the work of one of my favorite people. My aunt, Bonnie Saland, who after practicing for many years as a Jungian Analyst and raising 2 incredible adults, has turned her hands and eyes toward making art.

Bonnie’s created an impressive body of work consisting of painting, drawing, print making, and collage, that on it’s own is rich in color, texture, not to mention thought provoking. From this work, has come a really interesting line of house ware, textiles, and patterns, all derived from the shapes and images culled from her artwork, and then repeated in beautiful ways by friend and collaborator Margi Denton.

I shot Bonnie’s line of products last week at her home.

Her company is called PHILOMELA,  please take a peak at a this little sample of Bonnie’s rich and inspiring collection, soon to be in stores and out in the world.

Wishing you a fantastic week!!

Bonnie Saland Fine art and Founder

Bonnie Saland is a practicing psychoanalyst and artist based in Los Angeles and The Sea Ranch, California. The interior and external journey provide subject and frame for her creative practice. Traversing an extensive archive of imagery from the personal and collective unconscious, she meanders through geographic, literary and spiritual references to provide an iconographic language with layers of meaning. A freely associated yet complexly organized body of work incorporates traditional patterning, abstraction, and the poetic use of color in an ongoing non-linear reconfiguration of journal, print, digitalized and textile format. Saland holds an M.F.A. (September 2012) from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design program at the Provincetown Work Center and is represented in Los Angeles by MB Abram Galleries.

At the end of last year Lara Schnitger, who is an established fine artist, and friend,  finished her first line of clothing called Sister Of Arp.

Since meeting at our daughter’s preschool 4 years ago, we have collaborated on several projects including the documentation of  The Wheel, a gorgeous piece of choreography by friend Kitty McNamee.

Shooting this collection,  was fantastic and inspiring, as I’ve been able to watch the evolution of Lara as a designer, and so loved documenting the studio and the collection as it’s all come together over the course of the last year.

All of the clothing in Sister of Arp, is hand made by Lara in her studio in Los Angeles, and originally began as Lara made costumes for dancers in The Wheel, and then for her friend Flea to perform in on tour.

This collection shows at Lara’s galleryAnton Kern in New York on February 8th.
