Looking at art is Josie’s favorite thing to do, followed closely by writing about it. After attending St. Olaf College in Minnesota for printmaking and exhibiting her own work for several years, Josie began writing. Her work has been published by the Reno News & Review, Fibonacci magazine and Capital City Arts Initiative. Her day job is teaching art and gardening to middle schoolers.
