Creative Corner – Out of Chaos

June 2, 2017 / 0 Comments

This beautiful piece of art was created by my friend Terah. I personally gravitate towards images of trees and roots I think because it represents grounding and growth for me. I’m so excited to share her creative work. After many years in a successful career with Coca-Cola, Terah was forced to go on disability in 2011 with chronic daily migraine.
