Billie Kay Gross of Studio Jardin is a Laramie, Wyoming based artist who uses multi-media 3D creations "glove people," and watercolor to create original artwork that will be on display and for sale at the 6th Biennial Touchstone Laramie Art Exhibition hosted by the Laramie Artists Project.
Billie Kay's work media varies from glass, leather and watercolor, to oil, clay and ink, as well as explorations into multi-media 3-d work. Most people in Laramie know her from my years as the UW Theare and Dance Department where she was supervisor of the costume shop, designing a variety of creations for the stage.
Growing up in Dubois, Wyoming, she earned my Bachelors in Education degree from the University of Wyoming, and taught art in Wyoming’s public schools. She moved back to Laramie in 1984 where she produced and exhibited works of fine art in local area galleries and exhibitions. Her work media varies from glass, leather, and clay, to watercolor landscapes, oils and ink. Explorations into “Glove People” are multi-media 3-d works which draw from collective archetypes of tribal origin, incorporating beads, fur, hand-spun fibers, and old trinkets. Patrons are encouraged to see in the “People” what their own imagination finds. She also holds a Masters of Fine Art degree in which the final exhibition featured a short story on my handmade paper, bound into tanned buckskin. Her original script from that book was simultaneously performed as live onstage theatre at the UW Theatre Department in 1988.
