JOCELYN SHIPLEY used to show with CANADA in the early days, and she was !! one of their best artists, but I guess a hard sell, because ?? what happened.
she was notorious at one point for sweeping up the youngest, barely in his teens, baby brother member of DEARRAINDROP – into the folds of her ample bosom, and ROB PRUITT should be notorious for ripping off her upside-down legs sculptures, concrete-stuffed real blue denim jeans.

KITTY was also wearing a great cut-out ‘quilt’ pieced dress, that looked a bit like a KELIE BOWMAN silk screen, cut-out & re-patterned stitched painting. though the dress was subtle it was wild, it had sheer panels, in all the right places. she looked like she was born into it, it fit her so well. it was knock-out gorgeous, if you really stopped to look – kind of thing.
