Meet the artists
What do the people actually think?
CardiacLeatherWorks (CLW) is dedicated to promoting the arts of incarcerated artists and fostering creativity in confinement. Our mission is to provide the blueprint for artistic practice that will enrich and inspire.
Founded in 2016, by Jason Lacewell and Harvey Bloodstone while incarcerated, Cardiac Leather refers to the homemade art paper peeled from cardboard boxes. With limited resources, in a hostile environment, our creativity thrived. We discovered the process of creating artwork as a form of catharsis and communication.
Jason Lacewell, Bruce Ward, and Harvey Bloodstone are the core of Cardiac Leather Works.
