Ever heard of Mina Loy?? Well, you should!

Late last year I was contacted by a lovely young lady who is writing her thesis on an artist and poet named Mina Loy. She wanted to commission a piece of Ms. Loy to hang on her wall and keep her inspired through the daunting task! At first I was a little perplexed, and then once I started to learn a bit about Mina Loy, I was intrigued! She was a talented, baudy woman who was surrounded by some of the greatest poets, writers and artists in history. She dreamed of accomplishing things no woman of her time dared! In the end I think this was one of my favorite projects to date! I absolutely loved the experience!
