Danila Rumold received her MFA in Painting from the University of Washington in 2001. Working professionally as an artist Danila exhibits her work at IMA Gallery in Seattle and SFMOMA Gallery in SanFrancisco. Online she shows with UGallery, participates with BayVan artist registry and has work on her artist website.
Post graduate school, Danila worked extensively in arts Education, teaching at Kirkland Arts Center, Pratt Fine Arts Center and Seattle University. During this eleven year period, Danila recognized the importance of non violent communication and emotional intelligence. This led her to the exploration of the contemplative tradition of Vipassana meditation, within the Therevadan Buddhist Lineage. Many of the Buddhist principles have come to serve as inspiration for her work. Focusing on Art and Spirituality, Danila started an art subscription project called Buddah box art that she collaborates on with Poet, Elizabeth Myhr.
On August 4, 2013, Danila had a home birth where she welcomed her daughter Emilia Fisher Rumold to the world. During the last two years her work has become involved with issues of the unseen work of motherhood and being an artist, family, the process of gestation, birthing and its counterpart, loss. Although these issues have been personal concerns, they are ones which have been shared by woman throughout history.
Lucy Miller Robinson is a walking oxymoron. She’s a mother who thinks she can write at home and a hippie with a penchant for leather. She holds a Magna Cum Laude degree from the University of Washington Foster School of Business that she hopes she never uses again. She writes for Mamalode, SheKnows, BlogHer, MindBodyGreen, Elephant Journal and various other websites and publications. A Seattle native, Lucy currently lives in San Francisco.
Find her blogging about motherhood, mindfulness and the creative life at Lucille in the Sky, where it’s okay to have your head in the clouds. She posts the occasional piece of modern life poetry on her creative writing blog and she’s on the hunt for a literary agent to help publish her patiently queuing novels that explore themes of materialism, vanity, promiscuity, alcoholism and sexism in settings such as Thailand and college sororities. She has roughly ten documents open on her hardworking MacBook at any given time.
