      Artist Spotlight - Flannery Ballard

      Artist Spotlight - Flannery Ballard

      We are back at it with ✨Artist Spotlights!✨ There are so many amazing creatives in our community and we want to UPLIFT them. Each month expect new artist spotlights that will introduce you to them, their mediums, and let you in all the cool things they're doing lately. 

      -

      Who are you and what do you do? 

      My name is Flannery Ballard, and by day I am a program manager with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. I work to help guide contaminated sites through the regulatory process of remediation. By evening, I am a master craftsman who enjoys making sweaters of varying itchiness for my loved ones. I hike, I snowboard, I forage - I love living in Juneau. 

      Who or what inspires you? 

      I really love finding new artists who are making unique pieces that are wearable in everyday life. I love that knitting gives me the ability to wear hand made pieces that are useful, beautiful, and lasting. 

      What is your favorite moment in your process? 

      Puzzling out a pattern that on first read does not seem to make sense. 

      What is a trick of your trade or a piece of advice for artists in your medium?

      When in doubt - rip it out! I love that knitting is a reusable and recyclable craft! If you have made a mistake, or you end up not liking how a piece has turned out - simply rip it out and make something else. 

      What's next? 

      To become a pattern tester, or potentially a pattern designer myself! 

      Where can we find you? 

      I don't have social media for my work, yet! You can find me at Juneau Knit Worthy, I've been knitting there for several years.

      All kitchen utensils are more fun when they’re also cute; like this 𝐜𝐨𝐩𝐩𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐭𝐥𝐞 𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐫, 𝐰𝐨𝐨𝐝𝐞𝐧 + 𝐠𝐨𝐥𝐝𝐞𝐧 𝐛𝐨𝐭𝐭𝐥𝐞 𝐨𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐫, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐜𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝐢𝐫𝐨𝐧 𝐜𝐫𝐨𝐰 𝐛𝐨𝐭𝐭𝐥𝐞 𝐨𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐫. Btw each item is hand crafted.

      Gift Guide for Changemakers

      Gift Guide for Changemakers

      This gift guide is for the changemakers; for those who want to want to have a positive impact on the world and feel safe enough to show it! We see you & are with you. ✊🏼

      The '𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐬𝐡𝐚𝐝𝐞 𝐩𝐢𝐧’ looks great on hats, jackets, backpacks, and just about anything else you can think of! 

      𝐀 𝐢𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐀𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐬𝐭 is a book for the next generation of changemakers. This beautifully illustrated book is unapologetic about activism, environmental justice, civil rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and everything else activists fight for! 

      The 𝐩𝐨𝐜𝐤𝐞𝐭 𝐒𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐭 𝐨𝐫𝐠𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐫 not only keeps you organized, but keeps you informed on important dates, birthdays, and events in radical history and provides you with a contact list of radical leftist groups around the globe, a menstrual calendar, and info on police repression, and much more so you can make a difference; no matter how big or small. 

      The ‘𝐧𝐨𝐛𝐨𝐝𝐲 𝐢𝐬 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞, 𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐥 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐛𝐨𝐝𝐲 𝐢𝐬 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞’ sticker reminds us to be active allies where we can be. It’s about the entire collective. 

      Needing some inspiration? The 𝐩𝐨𝐜𝐤𝐞𝐭 𝐑𝐁𝐆 𝐰𝐢𝐬𝐝𝐨𝐦 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤 is full of quotes from one of the most influential legal figures in history: Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Contains 96 pages of quotes to keep the fight going. 

      These 𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐛𝐨𝐰 𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐒𝐥𝐞𝐞𝐩𝐲 𝐌𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐧 are the CUTEST way to express yourself. We’re in love! 

      We’re embracing our bodies as they are! Loving our bodies as they are! Stick these 𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐤𝐞𝐫𝐬 wherever you find yourself needing a lil reminder. 

      This 𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐝𝐞 𝐟𝐥𝐚𝐠 comes in three sizes (and an iron on patch) so you can celebrate the diverse identities out there and raise awareness of causes that move humanity in a more positive direction ANYWHERE you have a place to hang it. P.S. a portion of each flag goes to a relevant charity/organization. 

      We want to honor 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐬𝐡𝐚 𝐏. 𝐉𝐨𝐡𝐧𝐬𝐨𝐧 anytime we can! Marsha was a gay libertarian activist, drag queen, strong figure in the Stonewall uprising in 1969, and dedicated the rest of her life to helping support homeless transgender youth. Need we say more? 

      We’re doing the work; the 𝐒𝐨𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐉𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐇𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐥𝐞. It can be quiet, it can be big, it can be paperwork, it can be holding space. It looks different on everyone. But it means showing up each day for the good fight. Join the hustle. 

      Happy holidays!

      Xoxo,
