Beanie has been a life long fan of jazz, growing up listening to her father play guitar, from the era of Freddie Greene and the Count Basie Big Band. She studied piano and guitar into her teens, until her focus on being a visual artist came to the forefront. She studied art in Hartford, CT, Boston, MA and Los Angeles, CA. She has exhibited her work around the U.S., Italy, Japan, S. Korea, and Thailand.
Beanie came to KSFR in 2007, when there was a need for an afternoon jazz host. She had never done any broadcasting, but was happy to learn and share the music that she loves with a jazz audience. She is so thrilled to be a part of the knowledgeable group of jazz dj’s and musicians at KSFR.
Lauren Camp consistently and creatively uses art, voice, poetry and sound to move others. Since 2004, Lauren has been a producer and host for KSFR-FM, Santa Fe Public Radio. During that time she has anchored three shows: “The Colors of Jazz” (2004-2010), “Poetry Talk” (2007-2008) and currently, “Audio Saucepan,” a genre-defying mix of music and poetry on Sundays from 6 to 7 PM. She approaches each show from a visual arts aesthetic, focusing on the colors and shapes of the different musical tracks, and how she can best splice them together with a few surprising lines of poetry.
Lauren has been recognized for both her visual artwork and her poetry. Her art has found its way into children’s hospitals, public housing, police stations, community centers, United States Embassies in Ukraine, Turkmenistan and Mali, and other organizations around the world. Her series of jazz portraits, “The Fabric of Jazz,” toured museums in ten U.S. cities between January 2004 and September 2007. Thousands viewed the spirited, musical exhibit.
While “The Fabric of Jazz” was on the road, Lauren began compiling poems for her first book, This Business of Wisdom (West End Press, 2010), which includes several jazz-based poems. More than 150 of her poems have been published in journals and anthologies. She has guest-edited special sections for World Literature Today (on jazz poetry) and for Malpaís Review (on the poetry of Iraq). She frequently collaborates with musicians to create multimedia performances.
Lauren has been recognized by the Gaea Foundation (an organization that celebrates arts and activism), the Southwest Literary Center, the Anna Davidson Rosenberg Poetry Awards, and the Surface Design Association for her art and writing.
Also, a part-time educator, Lauren teaches creative writing throughout northern New Mexico, and whenever she can find a moment, offers thoughts on poetry and fine writing on her blog, Which Silk Shirt.
To contact Lauren Camp:
As a “cultural creative,” I have always been interested in alternative modalities; art, music, theater, dance, films,healing, cultural anthropology, the environment. In 1960, I started the first interior design consultation service in New York ( called Instant Interiors) using what people have in a new way. In 1971, I created the first quilt gallery showing antique American quilts as art (Quilt Gallery, Inc.) long before hanging abstract quilts on the walls became fashionable. I started working with the metaphysical school Arica in 1971,and became a certified teacher of T'ai Chi Chuan in 1978. I am a born-and-bred New Yorker who moved to Santa Fe in 1982.In 1999,started Living Juicy! I see myself as a bridge between mainstream and leading-edge modalities.
