About the art in this issue:

Dina Potter is a contemporary abstract artist based in Seattle, Washington. Her artistic inclinations have driven her since childhood to pursue an education and career in the arts, and she has continued to seek out her artistic passions in design, creation, and painting. Inspiration for her art comes from music, sounds, nature, and the visuals of everyday life. Ms Potter seeks to create the illusion of depth, bold movement, and rhythmic-flowing pattern, exaggerating and abstracting those images and making them her own in each of her creations. Her art has been showcased in numerous exhibits, art walks, and galleries, and has been placed in commercial and residential permanent installations. She also volunteers as an art docent instructor to elementary-level students, and enjoys spending time with her family, trail running, and gardening in her beautiful Pacific Northwest backyard.
