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 is slowly constructing a considerate practice, endearingly named, Lefty Smudges. Playing with paper, collage, print, and ink, playing at running her own post office, Allyson uses Lefty Smudges as a tool to generate community engagement, and to keep the conversation, experience, and depth of human relationship found in written communication, happening.
