Announcing our July Illustrator

We are THRILLED to have the wonderfully talented Karen Bell providing her images and photo-collages for our July Endangered issue. I’ve been a fan of Karen’s work ever since I attended her open studio showing at VCCA where we were both fellows.

When we came up with the theme of ENDANGERED, I knew her work would be perfect to grace that issue. Lucky for us, she graciously agreed to let us use her wonderful images.
