Anna Karakalou is 34. Her short dark violet hair hangs short. She expresses herself with her home that is furnished with dark-shaded furniture and a small, rusted black piano sitting in the living room. On the side, she sings in the band, “We Govern We” and describes their music as “dark and hopeful.”

Bill Jeralds--An angel of infinite possibilities
 #Throw Back Mondays (originally posted 8/10/10)
A cold, a collapsed lung, double pneumonia, two collapsed lungs, acute respiratory distress system, a coma. Five years ago, this series of events plagued Bill Jeralds--a man living in LA and working as a technician for companies such as Myspace and Digital Insight. Jeralds’ wife was told that he would never wake up from this awful coma but she did not sign to stop treatment--she believed he would persevere, and three days later, Jeralds miraculously woke up.

Originally, Sarah Roberts, 28, set out to pursue a career in photography. She had always been interested in the arts, working as a part time employee to a local theater production company, but it was not until after she had completed her time at Shoreline college studying photography, that her true passion for design unveiled itself.

Vonder Gray is another artist at the WAV who has been involved with art and acting for over twenty years. Gray describes her art as “abstract expressionist”.  “The color, the brush strokes, the markings if you will, are all conceived at an emotional level that informs the work both on the surface and beneath the surface”. Gray went on to say that she “is always interested in what’s behind the façade of a painting and of a person”.

At about 22-years-old, Taras Tulek pursued art for only two reasons.
“I wanted to help people. I wanted to challenge myself,” says Tulek, who will turn 64 this month.
Wishing to pursue a job that allowed him to assist others who suffer mentally, Tulek was on-path towards earning a degree in psychiatry. But then, he changed his mind.
“I decided that I could really challenge myself by being an artist,” says Tulek, who believes he could serve the same role of assisting others as an artist.
“I could then give the same comfort to people through art, and really express … the awesomeness of existence to other people.”
