Meet the Staff Artist
Our book trout logo was designed by my excellent daughter, Leigh, a high school freshman and very talented artist. I must brag that she just won Best in Show at an exhibition, The Young Artists Palette Project, sponsored by the North Country Arts Center in Glens Falls, New York. This impressive art exhibit featured wooden palettes decorated by high school students. There were fiber art palettes decorated with home-grown, home-dyed wool, sophisticated self-portrait, a couple of frogs on lily pads and a great palette decorated with painted rabbits. Leigh's mixed-media design involved a wooden figure holding a palette covered with painted organs, antique anatomical images and a graffiti-like vibe all over. Look for more Leigh designs on this blog in the future. And my Book Minnow also wants to let everyone that she will work cheap, so drop a line to Mama Book Trout if you need some graphic design work.
