On a Tuesday night, SaFrancisco-based artist, Michelle Blade and I chatted online like we do always about art and life. The week before I was in her studio where I shot photographs of her newest work. We agreed an interview between the two of us would best be a chat online since that is part of our daily routine. We are very close friends and when we cannot actually hang out, we chat online all day long. If you are in the Los Angeles area, please visit Michelle’s exhibition, “Hanging Fire” at Carter & Citizen. It is on view through June 23rd, 2012.

LPP was one of the first online stores offering artist editions.
