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 (firstname.lastname@example.org). Information about this project can be found on this website, or on Instagram (@leftysmudges).
