He (“Nature’s way”) is a visual artist based in Miami, Fla. Martin primarily uses photography and cinematography as his medium to tell stories. He believes that stories can help bridge the gap of ignorance and create a space of understanding.
She (“Better together”) is a Minneapolis-based freelancer who writes for colleges and universities across the country. When she’s not writing, she cheers on the Minnesota Twins. She also parents her very own pair of 5-year-old Minnesota twins, who — like the baseball team — love playing games but are also constantly losing things.
She (“Better together”) is a freelance illustrator and adjunct professor at Virginia Commonwealth University – School of the Arts in Richmond, Va. She attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y. Paper — textured, handmade, and patterned — has always been a passion for her. Inspiring and versatile, it’s the foundation of her 3D illustrations.
