Angela Rae Barribeau is a local artist (who lives in Fall Creek).  As an x-ray technologist she works in grayscale.  However, she loves to play in color, creating mixed-media paintings, jewelry, collage and journals.

“This piece is one of approximately 70 in a series that I did after taking an online class from an Arkansas artist, Mindy Lacefield. Using layers of marks, words, letters, numbers, quotes, scribbles, paint, paper, collage, alcohol inks, drips, scratches, and scrapes, a background is fashioned. Once I am happy with this base, I imagine a character emerging out of the layers.  Again, using light layers of glaze and paint, I bring this character to life and its features into existence. I love creating in many art mediums. Painting, jewelry making, sewing, collage, quilting, binding my own journals and books, rubber stamping, making altered books – I get lost in the art making, and it is my playground!”  – The Artist

Volume One finds its cover art in a number of ways, from local art shows to random emails to knowing someone who knows someone who knows a great artist. The art always originates from a current or former Chippewa Valley resident. If you'd like to submit cover art, send us a letter.
