Vaughn Kimmons
The Lonely Artist club presents Vaughn Kimmons, a multidisciplinary artist who many of us know for singing in bands around town like Tribe Mars and Brown Calculus. Vaughn is a musician, wardrobe stylist, collage artist and a general visionary who's art goes deep into concepts of self care, and obscure beauty. She has a wonderful way of verbalizing what art and the journey becoming an artist FEELS like. This interview really lets you into her psyche. Did we mention she's funny as hell? The Lonely Artist club is a MetroEast and Women in Film PDX original series interviewing local artists about their craft, their inspirations and how the COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting them.
