Featured Artist: Cari Carter at Motokitty
Cari Carter is the craft queen. I don't even know where to begin when talking about all of her clever, quirky wearable creations. The naugahyde messenger bags? Or maybe the sparkly Pocket Protectors that keep your money, ID, and keys fashionably in one place. Then there are the colorful earrings made with feathers and the silhouette necklaces...
And this is just a partial list of what she makes. Her store in SE Portland, Motokitty, features not only her work, but that of other Portland, Oregon artisans. She shares the space with Modified, a custom commercial screenprint shop that not only sells their wares at the Division Street shop, but at various other venues in the Portland area.
You can also get custom work from Miss Carter, as has been shown on my blog (the Holistica Teabag Tote!). She even customized a Snuggie for the Lady Arm Wrestling competition/benefit earlier this year.
Is there anything she can't do?
