Lamb & Lion Studio is the art and design studio of Janina Lamb, who is imagining the world, and trying to protect it from scary finger puppets and other monsters.
Lamb: my name, Leo: my sign, and I like the biblical "peace" connotation of the lion and the lamb hanging out together. For me, Lamb & Lion means external and internal, earth and sky, or any complementary duality in which the sum is greater than the parts.
If you would like to read my recent newsletter, I'd Rather Be Here Now #1, in which I discuss, oh, art, life, sustainability, and what I'm up to, please use this link. Excerpt from the newsletter:
I still find the words "I'd rather be here now," which I made into a bumpersticker many years ago, a sweet and wistful expression of what we're up against as human beings. Of course we would rather Be Here Now! That's where all the goodies are... the Joy, the Love, the Close Attention that swells the heart and from which creation flows. Everything you can't get at Home Depot. Being Here Now is where the action is, and the responsibility—the response-ability.
Slight problem: Being Here Now requires more guts and humility than most of us have, most of the time. Being Here Now opens us up to possibilities beyond the reach of our habitual means of self-protection. And that is scary.
Being Here Now is better than anything in the world except when we want to be anywhere else. Which is usually. Hey, welcome to the human condition. I'd rather be here now.
Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere. ~ Gilbert K. Chesterton
The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect, but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.
Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)
Form follows function – that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union. ~ Frank Lloyd Wright
