In Awe Of: Erin Kawamata

This photo pretty much sums up why I’m in awe of Erin Kawamata: her calm in the face of the stalkerazzi. Just kidding. Kinda. 🙂

Erin Kawamata is an visual artist, a photographer, and a textile artist. She is also hilarious. She is also totally at home being Erin Kawamata. She is also my role-model for kind, ethical living.

She listens to everything carefully before she acts on it. She gives everyone the benefit of the doubt. She calls the aquarium the “sea zoo.” She has knit, sewn, glued and written me some of the nicest gifts I’ve ever recieved. In fact, they are so whimsical and numerous I’m thinking of making a segment on this here blog entitled “Stuff Erin’s Made for Me”

She is endlessly delighful and I feel so lucky to have her in my life.
