Cover Art: Scarred Beauty by Gerburg Garmann

Gerburg Garmann, a native of Germany, is a former professor of Global Languages and Cross-Cultural Studies at the University of Indianapolis, USA, and is now fully concentrating on the arts.  Her scholarly publications appear in English, German, and French in international journals. Her artwork and poems have appeared in various magazines and anthologies around the world. “Painting is yet another foreign language for me and allows for aesthetic expression in form of color, shape, thought, and passion. It is a language, which can be shared by many, verbally and non-verbally. Because paintings (just as other forms of art) provide symbolic as well as real meeting grounds of the spiritual and our day-to-day experiences, they solicit our reaction no matter whether our engagement with the actual piece of art ends up in affection or dislike, in affirmation or disapproval. In the end, all artwork manifests a story.” She specializes in creating art for women.

Suttons Bay by Lori McElrath Eslick

As a Kendall grad, and one of the few from Kendall who is hired by Hallmark Cards in Kansas City as a greeting card artist, they demand that level of all the artists that they recruit and hire from around the country, and world, so I’ve worked hard all of my working artist life to create art to the best of my skills. Now as a children’s book author and illustrator, I’ve illustrated 20 plus picture books a few are also in watercolor. That said, to paint at any level is to have fun. Art should be about having fun.
