Looking at art is Josie's favorite thing to do, followed closely by writing about it. She is one of those people who believes that art can change the world, and she blames this on her excellent third grade teacher, Ms.Cain, who let her study "Famous Artists" instead of "Big Cats" or "Penguins." After attending St. Olaf College in Minnesota for printmaking and exhibiting her own work for several years, Josie began writing.
