Bio:

I'm an artist and art teacher working towards a career in illustration in Bellevue, Washington. I live with my husband of 16 years, my two kids that I also homeschool (ages 12 and 9), and two silly gerbils, Star and Chip. With every spare minute, I'm painting, usually with watercolor, and managing my two-time champion fantasy basketball team.

Come along on my recent trip to Yellowstone! Follow the dotted path to see all the wild, surreal, majestic sights I saw. Drive slowly and carefully to spot the wildlife along the way, and be patient; bison might hold you up in traffic halfway through the trip. Happy travels!

My Happy Place: Crissy Field in San Francisco, California by Jess Burbank

I love to bike ride through Crissy Field. It is definitely one of my happy places. I love the plentiful, free parking. I love rolling down the bright green grassy hills with my kids. I love visiting The Warming Hut Bookstore & Cafe, waving to the seabirds at Torpedo Wharf, and then hitting the San Francisco Bay Trail on a bicycle.

A Treacherous Walk With My Aging Mother Around the Lake at Her Apartment Complex by Jess Burbank

During this stressful time of quarantine, my mother has suffered from high blood pressure and cabin fever--two things that don't mix well. I didn't realize the severity of her health issues until we tried to walk around the lake at her apartment complex, a walk we had done many, many times before, and realized that she could hardly make it around anymore. Everything on the walk felt like a danger. I documented those dangers--and my fear for her-- in this map.
