Featured Resident Artist: Jo Lynda Blake, Burbank Senior Artists Colony

We have many talented, creative residents living in our EngAGE communities. Here’s one from BSAC:

Jo Lynda Blake is a writer and artist originally from Oklahoma. She takes drawing, poetry, jewelry making, and crafts classes, and participates in the writing group. She says that she has always written and doodled. She had a charcoal drawing printed on the family page of The Christian Science Monitor when she was 12. Her story about her father’s spiritual experience was published in Christian Digest. She also has one unique “claim to fame” — a one-liner in the National Enquirer! She was asked, “What is happiness (in one sentence) to you?” Her reply: “Happiness is a warm tomato fresh from the garden.”

Jo Lynda models a scarf she made in the BSAC shibori indigo dying workshop.

Some of Jo Lynda’s colorful work currently hangs in the BSAC resident gallery.
