We spoke with Asheville artist Megan Kelly ( @megankellyart ) about her collaborating with other artists and making textiles from her art.
You do a lot of collaborations -- how does that work?
I've definitely done more mural collaborations than not. My partner, Dustin Spagnola, and I work a lot together. I really enjoy the creative process of two artists coming together and blending techniques. It's always an exciting and satisfying experience seeing your work come together with someone else.
Which artist would you love to collaborate with?
I'd love to work with tons of artists! I think Swoon's work is really incredibly beautiful. And I love working with other women artists. So that's definitely up there on the list.
Have you ever thought about turning your art into textiles or fashion?
Making textiles from my work is on the to do list. I have dreams of tiling rooms with my designs. Just haven't gotten that far yet. It will happen sooner rather than later hopefully. I'll keep you posted!
