About the artist

Patricia M. Carlson was born in Minneapolis, MN in 1957. Her family moved to Long Beach, Ca., when she was 3 years ld. It was there, between the majestic Pacific Ocean and the energing LA freeway system, that Patti got her groovitude and a keen eye for everything beautiful. Her passion for beauty led her a degree in Enviromental Design from the University of Caolifornia, Los Angeles. She moved to Bloomington, IL., more than a decade ago with her husband Danie and two children, Nate and Catherine. In the flat lands of Central Illinois she continues to appreciate nd photograph beautiful forms in nature. She is also the Newsletter Editor of the Central Ilinois Audubon Society, and she teaches part time at Illinois State University's Laboratory Schools. The photograph featured on the cover was taken at Dawson Lake, about 15 miles east of Bloomington, during a glorious fall afternoon. This spot at Dawson Lake is one of her favorite mediatation sites.
