If you've ever been lucky enough to visit the extraordinary shop Tail of the Yak in Berkeley, CA, you realize there must be some amazing talent behind the production. I was so surprised when I came across artist Lauren McIntosh in an issue of New American Paintings a year or so ago. Her biography listed her as the art director for Tail of the Yak. I adore her free style of painting and the way she paints-rather than pastes- her compositions with collage. It looks like she has been painting and exhibiting since 1980 and has become quite prolific with work at several galleries across the country. Visit her beautiful website here.
