When I first met Jodi, two things stood out. The first was her energy and her drive. It seems she was doing a hundred things all at once – teaching, creating art, publishing a book, writing blog articles. The second – and perhaps more significant – was her demeanor. To quote a song by REM, Jodi is a “shiny, happy person.” Her confidence and joy exude from every pore of her being.
That joy reflects in her art. Whether she is painting whimsical houses, joyful birds, or practicing her Zen painting style, there is a positivity and playfulness that is very evident.
