Tiffany Brown, a product of the eighties as evidenced by her horribly clichéd name, works in PR by day and writes by night. As a post-recession graduate from Hollins University, her job at a local Newscorp affiliate influences a sense of cynical naïveté in her work. Her boston terrier, Moose, is her sole editor, so feedback is welcomed and appreciated

Hailing from the sunniest side of the world, Leah Ozone Ford captures the silent essence of life. At the age of 23, and a recent college graduate, this black queen lies on the Santa Monica beach thinking about her next move.
Michaela Smith’s mother named her “Michael-ah”, her work wanders religiously through space. She believes in the notion of “trick nasty”.
Zephren and Page Turner both enjoy making art and hiking/camping as their driving passions. Nature = Adventure. They have been best-friends for 16 years – 6 of those years they have combined best-friend with husband & wife. Both feel compelled to create and have a shared studio space. For the past 5 years Page Turner Studios has been and still is committed to providing thought provoking art and engaging in a dialog about our current culture and interpersonal introspection.
FOUNDERS
Mosquito bite scars, I am gathering them– heartily around the ankles. They branch and spiral up my shins, calves, ending somewhere between thigh and pubis. Talking to a friend today I swat those high kneed and lace-winged future frog dinners. I wander past a pitbull on a dog-run to straddle a rickety dock. I think I see an alligator bubbling and half risen in the distance. I do see a fish like a pike. It seems leopard printed, with a spoonish needle nose. I consider how I came here. Florida, wet flat lands, sand not slate. My work is an attempt to capture travel, down-ward relocation from Virginia — words and images like red-veined creeper vines, a current carrying me  state-to-state.

It rains today, the kind of tropical downpour that keeps those of us who live high on the mountain in El Yunque from coming down; the landslides are on their way and I can see that the Cubuy and Sabana Rivers are overflowing.  And I know that when the sun decides to show its face, these mountain ridges will become a valley of rainbows.  How much I am going to miss them.  This place.  This landscape.  Looking towards the distant view of the Caribbean Sea, I think about how human emotions are so deeply embedded within the interplay between the body and landscape. Using the physical geography of land to express the inner geography of the emotional self or psyche is at the core of my poetics.
