april hannah llewellyn
Hello! My name is April Hannah Llewellyn — april h l for short. This is me:
I’m quite enthusiastic about making in any form at any level, from my smaller craft-based pieces to my much larger long-term projects. I consider them all variations on labors of love: all ways to further understand how creating can build relationships between people, communities, and places. Since I’m covering a wide ground, I like my artistic endeavors to be interdisciplinary; playing with various techniques and mediums, experimenting with different ideas and outcomes. My favorite toys in this toolbox include papermaking, illustration, book arts, web design, jewelry making, and painting.
My hometown is the geek haven of Huntsville, AL where I graduated with a degree in studio art from the University of AL in Huntsville in 2009. I now reside in Chicago, IL, where I recently graduated with an MFA in Interdisciplinary Book and Paper Arts from Columbia College Chicago. I spend most of my days helping others get their craft on at an awesome chainmaille jewelry company and my evenings are generally taken up by making things and watching way too many netflix with my cow-kitty Sam.
