Going through one of my FAVORITE magazines...(sorry, but this one is a secret) I began reading an interview and discovered one COOL chick: Aurel Schmidt.
Schmidt, born and raised in Canada can best be described as a mis-fit. Wearing over-sized glasses, hailing from a trailer-park and not too well received or encouraged by her pa-rentals, this 25 y/o ditched Canada and headed for Vancouver. There she dived into the art scene and the rest is history.
Here are some images from her book: Burn Out "This series focuses on the profane, icky, neglected and overlooked objects of daily life"
While grotesque, its fascinating as well.
