Pineapple Bubble Gum strides towards making one-of-a-kind clothing, accessories, and weavings, using repurposed and unusual materials. A collaboration of two artists, Mary Louise Reeves and Bubble Gum Coffey. Mary earned her BFA in Painting at the Kansas City Art Institute, and Bubble Gum earned her BFA in Printmaking at the University of Northern Iowa. Both artists have always had an interest in fiber-based creation. In undergrad Bubble Gum focused on sewing, crochet, and fabric printing; Mary focused on weaving, dye work, and pattern design. Together, they are teaming up to create fresh, funky and adorable objects to look at and wear.
