Lana Crooks loves the antique, the creepy, the cute and the mysterious. She began her artistic life as an illustrator but became a sculptor of fabrics and found objects. Her personal works are exhibited globally and she is frequently sought after by other artists, to help translate their own visions into fabric. In 2009 she partnered with the OhNo!Doom collective and operated a gallery in Chicago, IL for over 3 years. In 2013 she became the gallery director for Clutter Magazine's gallery space in Beacon, NY and enjoys being a guest curator to other galleries around the world. But, on an average day, you can find her in the studio surrounded by model ships, books, skulls, faux fur, glass eyes, a menagerie of stuffed friends and a cat named Tanuki.
