BY LORI MASLEY
@ VOL 17 ON JUN 06, 2019

Lori Masley is a Physical Therapist by profession and confirmed math/science geek who finds her creative balance in quilting. What began as an initial attraction to the geometry and precision of traditional quilt patterns soon turned in to an obsessive desire to accumulate fabric. The need to conceal the extent of her stash inspired further creativity in the task of hiding it from her long suffering husband who knows what's good for him.

Evolution of an "Artist"

BY ANTHONY DIMAGGIO
@ VOL 16 ON MAR 28, 2019

Anthony "Scooter" DiMaggio was born and raised here in Michigan but has lived half his life in New York City. Naturally, he combines a homespun mid-western practicality with a more global and holistic sensibility. As a visual artist, he moved quickly from drawing, to painting, to sculpture, then on to wacky invention. After graduate school, he reluctantly moved into the real world and among other things; enjoyed life as a bartender, helped to start a custom made bobblehead business, and began to seriously confront the age-old existential ponderings that yearn for spiritual enlightenment. Today, he expands this evolution with fresh intention and personality to share his brand of humor and awareness through newer features and formats.
