Faith Fulbright is a recent graduate of the Hoger Instituut voor Wijsbegeerte at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, where she obtained a bachelor's degree in continental philosophy. She has since returned to her family's farm to focus on reading, writing, and pursuing the visual arts. She adores the work of Henri Bergson and Michel Foucault, the art of Egon Schiele and Anselm Kiefer, and the photography of Dorothea Lange. In addition to philosophical papers, Faith has read and published poems in the States and abroad. As a photographer, she is especially excited by forms of decadence and decay.

S.C. Haas
Owl, Retirement Log, Kokopelli Plays for the Condors, Roadside Cross

S.C. Haas grew up convinced by an elementary school art assignment that she had no artistic abilities. Her career as a science librarian in a natural history museum allowed her to stay in touch with the natural world through its scientists and literature. Some 50+ years later, she drew a pelican that actually looked like a pelican. Now several years into retirement, she conveys through painting and photography the fascination with nature that has always been present in her life. Her first children’s book, Elly and the Wretched Worm Rain, was published in 2016 and is available through Amazon.
