Description
Laura Beeston is (another) Montreal-based artfag blogger, posting in between working towards a B.A. in journalism and editing at The Link, Concordia’s independent weekly newspaper. Attempting to master French in the process, she eagerly anticipates art reporting will force her from the office and onto the mean/sexy/inspiring ’scene’ consistently shaking down 514. Wild eyed and lipstick smeared, Laura has also been known to organize and perform burlesque, and has a karaoke alter ego.
