Fumiyo Yoshikawa

Fumiyo Yoshikawa
I paint my daughter, Madoka, and her dreams. Madoka means “circle,” a Japanese metaphor for peace, happiness, wholeness, and inclusiveness. When I gave birth, I named my daughter Madoka, wishing her to be generous and peaceful like the sun, calm and gentle like the moon.

Arbor Day : The Start of Planting Anew

Arbor Day : The Start of Planting Anew

April 10, 1872 - The first Arbor Day.  J.S. Morton taught us the importance of respecting nature, and replenishing this vital trunk of environmental nourishment. Trees provide oxygen, improve air quality, help conserve water, preserve soil, and support wildlife. 

Celebrate Arbor Day this year by planting a tree (bushes or flowers) and in doing so, learn here why we do.

Profiles in Art: Yaakov Bressler "The Golden Smile"

Yaakov Bressler is a Chemistry major, medical school applicant, and former medical researcher.  But he discovered his true profession early on - as a playwright.  He says even while pursing his science major, he was always writing.  He is taking the time now to see how far it will take him. Yaakov is a talented artist (the profile icon of Face I and Face II are his works as well) who is following a dream, and determining if he chose it, or it chose him.
