He also asks Leah some wonderfully poignant questions about pregnancy and the transition into motherhood as an artist. Look for some of the artists he mentions in our conversation – Junyu Liu, Alex and Allison Grey, and Jennifer Elster – as well as events he’s involved with coming up at Ma’s House on the Shinnecock Reservation & Little Beach Harvest in July.
