Elizabeth Lyska: A REAL giantess from 1880!

A few years ago when I was traveling a lot for work I rented my apartment in New York to 
Patty Grazini, a paper artist who is so talented that I have stalked her like a true psycho!  Over the years I had worshipped her work.........and here she was staying in my apartment in the East Village of NYC!  Last week she contacted me and let me know about her new exhibit which is simply breathtaking.  It focuses on the life of a real giantess named Elizabeth Lyska from 1880.  You must see this exhibit if you can. If not, just google the images and look at all of the stunning paper sculptures Patty creates.  I hope you love her as much as I do.
