Cover Artist: Rachel Brown
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
Rachel Brown is a junior at Missouri State University, studying Art, Creative Writing and Spanish. While she is not sure what she wants to do with her life, she does know it will have something to do with art, her true passion.
For the most part, Rachel’s work is driven by her reading, traveling and spirituality. She has volunteered in Guatemala, worked on the Navajo Indian Reservation, meditated with the Ishaya Monks and roamed much of the continental United States. Last semester she studied abroad in Malaga, Spain, which gave her the opportunity to dance Flamenco with gypsies, ride a camel in Morocco, camp in the Sahara desert and explore grottos in Portugal. In the last year, this young artist has wandered from the Parthenon to the Pantheon and through sixteen countries in-between.
Through it all, our planet has dazzled Rachel with her art, languages, cultures and most of all, her people, who have allowed the artist to view life with fresh eyes, a childlike perception and a mind open to new ways to combine and create.
