Luella was born in New York where she lived for four years. She now leaves upstate New York (a few miles from Woodstock), in a wonderful stone farm surrounded by nature. She has two younger brothers and lots of little animal friends. Her mom Ryan, founder of mor mor rita, teaches her how to cook, how to sew and how to make everything she touches become magically poetic and inspiring. Lucky Luella.

Screen Capture exhibition:
Parent and Child interviews revisited.
January 26 – 28 2019
In a fast-paced ever-changing world it’s important to occasionally stop and reflect on things done, and experiences shared. Pirouette’s Parent & Child interviews provide a snapshot in time of both the parent and their child. For the new Pirouette Screen Capture exhibition at Playtime Paris we ask a group of past participants to revisit their original interviews. With the children now in their teens, and the parents a little older they consider some new questions and reflect on their original answers.
