First piece of art you created?

Gosh, that's taking it way back! The piece of art I remember being proud of would have been a watercolor portrait of a young lamb. It was the outcome of that piece that created a spark for watercolor as my go-to medium.

First piece of art was an accent wall under my stair case out of super old reclaimed wood. It was all different colors and types of wood with chipped up paint, oil stains, and dirt from their old lives

Publishing for a Cause

Meet Rachel Gauna

First piece of art you created?

my first piece of art was a children's book with the same title as the one i have recently published, the thinking log. i can remember; i was living in colorado at the time; i made my own paper using recycling newspaper and water, boiled blueberries to dye the paper using the dark blue tinted water; and while the paper was drying on the screen, went on a hike looking for the perfect slice of bark to be adhered onto my cover. for the interior, i drew images, using colored pencils, that would reflect the part of the story on that particular page. it was a cute little book. at the time it was put together, i was in my mid-twenties-- maybe one day i will revive it.

Favorite show to binge watch?

there are so many to choose from. truthfully, i have recently stopped my services because i've been a writing maven--working on novel number 2. but, my last binge was the crown on netflix; stranger things, frankie and grace, and i think it's called longmire... that show was shot in new mexico. and truly, i'm not sure what i loved the most, the shots of hidden new mexico or the story or both.

Who or what is your biggest influence?

sylvia plath and kate chopin are two favorite writers. i like how their writings get you to internalize and i hope my writing will do the same for others. one of my favorite short stories, however, is the string, by guy de maupassant. i read this story as a sophomore in high school, and is what inspired me to want to be a writer.

Biggest pet peeve?

those who use God to justify their hate of all that is "different" from the person they think they are. my thought is either you love or you hate. it's a choice.

We’ve always been making designs and t-shirts, but turning it into a business started when our buddies, Western Plaza, got a recording contract with Burger Records and needed shirts for the release party of the cat on their album cover. Ever since then it’s been about creating things for creative people in our hometown.
