Laurel Roth, bay-area based artist and all around swell gal, executes her thoughtful, labor intensive works throughout a vast array of mediums. Each one as impressive as the last, and nothing short of mind blowing. I’ve been fortunate enough to see her work in person a few times and visit the studio where it all comes from. All i can say is WOW. Lots more gems after the jump…
