Donna Vaux, Cabbage Patch
Brad Garber has shown his drawings, photographs, mixed media, and paintings in the Portland and Lake Oswego, Oregon, area since 1997. His art and photographs made it onto the front cover the 2014 Vine Leaves Literary Journal anthology and have been published in Gravel Magazine, Off the Coast, Writers Tribe Review, Quail Bell, Four Ties Literary Review, Two Cities Review, Cargo Literary, Poor Yorick Journal, The Grief Diaries, Livid Squid, The Tishman Review, Crab Fat Literary Magazine, and many others.
Donna Vaux loves looking through a camera lens, be it up close and personal or at a distance. Maybe just catching a different perspective has fascinated this photographer. She loves the natural world around us and sees good things through the lens—it protects, and it draws us into seeing the world in a different way. Donna is a woman, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and human being who wishes good things for all lives.
