About the Artist
Katy Somerville was beamed into existence on a Monday night in the mid-eighties by stars, glitter, and a glorious Italian woman from a long line of very strong women. In the present timeline, she likes to drink coffee, pat any animal that will engage with her, make collages, and spend time laughing and finding moments of joy wherever she can with her partner and her goofy, lanky dog.
About the Collaborator
Victor Limencello was a budgerigar who flew abruptly into an office window and ended up living with Cream Scene’s Art Director “just until his home was found.” Six years later, on the day before Halloween, he flew over the rainbow bridge, leaving behind a collection of yellow and white feathers that his humans had been collecting in a jar.
His mortal body was donated to science, while the beautiful feathers he had discarded were donated to the Cream Scene Carnival.
