Compulsive artist/crafters Karie Jane and Jess Bonin formed a tight camaraderie in 2006 based on their artistic veracity, united nonconformity, and difficult pasts. Through their work they express the complex challenges and beauties of being a woman, a sister, a wife, a partner, a lover, a friend, a mother, a daughter, a fighter, and a survivor. This body of work addresses the concept of the pursuit of “happiness” and the obstacles therein.
