Contemporary Mixed Media Fiber Artist Michelle Drummond of Drummond Fine Art has partnered with Whiskers Laces, an imaginative shoelace company in Delray Beach, to design a piece using her creativity and their product.
Through this collaboration, Drummond will create a 24” x 24” 3-D mixed media fiber artwork on acrylic panel, using a combination of multi-colored, multi-textured, and multi-weighted fiber shoelaces from Whiskers.
According to Paul Groth, content manager of Whiskers Laces, “Her art speaks for itself with colors, effects, patterns, and even cooler—materials that you’ve never seen combined in such a way before.”
Groth calls the collaboration “a match made in weirdness heaven” explaining that “When we first saw one of her 3-D pieces, we were mind-blown.” He adds, “We are beyond excited to collaborate with her in combining her signature work with yarn and our shoelaces into a truly original and bespoke piece of art and to support an amazing creator in our community. Her art is funky, fun, vibrant, and different—and we’d like to think we are too.”
The completed artwork will be revealed in early July so watch Instagram and this space for progress updates and information on the big unveiling.
