I can't by Amber Fryxell

A daugh­ter of a sailor, I grew up with­out a home, bor­row­ing lives and tra­di­tions of any town the ship docked. I found com­fort in col­lect­ing books and music, look­ing for the quiet in every room. Years later I find myself ques­tion­ing the dif­fer­ence between being lonely and being alone. It would only make sense that I would turn to my old love, the book, to begin this conversation.

Blissful Yellow by Laura Weinberg

Laura Gold­man Wein­berg is an inde­pen­dent artist who allows the cre­ative energy of life to dance through her onto the can­vas. Her col­or­ful expres­sions illus­trate an empha­sis on value con­trasts which cre­ate won­der­ful lin­ear move­ment and patterns.

Peak Sigil Thug by Cory Peak

Although I cre­ate with­out inten­tion of a spe­cific out­come, gen­er­ally, I always try to encour­age oth­ers to be self-expressive, to cre­ate, to do what they can with what they have (you don’t have to be wealthy or ‘well edu­cated’ to express your­self), and to let what­ever may be inside of them out into the open to help them­selves grow and per­haps help oters see things they might not have oth­er­wise, and if noth­ing else to have fun!
