Allyson Proulx aka Lefty Smudges

‘Wanna play paper?’

‘What a lot we lost when we stopped writing letters.’


Beginning her career in art, with a background in theatre and literature, Allyson crafts a considerate practice, endearingly named Lefty Smudges. Playing with paper, collage, print, and ink, playing with her means of distribution, Allyson uses Lefty Smudges as a tool to investigate the many ways in which we as human beings use language to reveal ourselves.


Allyson currently works from London, Ontario. You can participate in her latest project: Alone, together. A 365 day mail art project, via email (leftysmudges@gmail.com). Information about this project can be found on this website, or on Instagram (@leftysmudges).
