A few days before Hurricane Sandy hit the North East I met up with Gurley – an artist from London whom I met through Jayson Lilley last year – on twitter!! She was here visiting for about a week, and asked if I would like to meet up in the city. Of course I did! I would have blogged about this awesome event sooner had Sandy not hit a few days later. The storm threw me completely off for about 3 weeks and then the holiday season kicked in. I did however have an awesome time with Gurley in NYC – we wandered around and went into bead stores, and wig stores and grandma’s attic looking antique stores! It was a lot of fun.
I’d also like to thank Gurley VERY much for my surprise. Before we departed on the subway, she gave me one of her pieces! The one featuring Mickey Mouse. I was really shocked and honored, and now I have works from both awesome London Artists Jayson Lilley and Gurley on display in my apartment. During our adventure I took some photos of her and her work… so I wanted to share them here.
