Art Editors

Melissa Arellano grew up wandering through the shady mountain trails and breezy ocean shores of the West Coast. She began accumulating personal coloring books and sketchbooks at an early age thanks to her painterly grandmother. To this day she floods her sketchbooks with the ramblings, drawings and dreams of an adventurous old soul in search of new wisdom.  In 2012 she graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art and a minor in Anthropology.  Her selected studies mirrored her admiration for the subtle differences between the familiar and the strange. She currently works at a private art gallery in Southern California and continues to maneuver her personal art practice through the imaginative realms in which she visits frequently.

Jennifer Huang currently lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but was born in the Maryland suburbs. She studies fine arts and creative writing at Carnegie Mellon University and will graduate in 2016. Her art practice usually involves embroidering, quilting, and short text, but she would like to explore screen printing greeting cards that have nothing to do with the holidays. In her spare time, she walks dogs and does barista things at a local coffee shop. She has two pets: a dog (Brady, cocker spaniel) and a rat (Daphne). She loves animals, cappuccinos, stupid jokes, and bacon, as well as taking road trips and trying new recipes.

Theresia Zimmermann lives in Germany commuting between her home town and the city where she studies Educational Sciences, after taking two years of advanced art classes she continued creating art and illustrating stories.

She enjoys scientific mysteries as well as nature documentary films. She loves pineapple cake.
