A Breeze You Whisper

Calla & Édourd

The Farm & City Cookbook

Kathryn MacDonald

Artist statement:

I’m interested in capturing the essence of things in each art form. Words and images are like mirrors inviting viewers to discover their personal relationship with the image/author. Each poem, each story, each photograph and sketch is an invitation.
