Laurie Letofsky Takes Pictures with an Eye for Form and Pattern

Laurie Letofsky is a photographer, painter, and seamstress whose home-based business, Lauren R. Myles Designs and Sewing, keeps her busy with custom orders and alterations. Amid all that, Laurie is also LoLa’s volunteer registrar and has assisted with other LoLa organizing tasks this year, including helping to match artists with suitable sites for the crawl.

She made the tailored LoLa table coverings for LoLa’s presence at events like the Longfellow Corn Feed in Longfellow Park this Thursday, August 14, and, on Saturday, August 16, at the Midtown Farmers’ Market and the new Longfellow Market grocery store (Lake Street at 35th Avenue)—where there will be art crawl maps available to pick up.

Laurie also works in watercolor, acrylics, and fiber. She is returning for her fifth LoLa art crawl, “and I have enjoyed each and every one of them,” she says. She is showing at her home studio in a convivial gathering with several other LoLa artists, in her shady backyard on Minnehaha Avenue, kitty-corner from Peace Coffee.

What inspires/informs your art?
Nature and texture

What do you like about LoLa? Why did you join?
I started because it was so easy and it gave me a reason to clean up my studio.

Are you planning anything special for LoLa?
We will be having all sorts of teas available for visitors, and a great story or visit.
