About the Cover Artist: Amanda Brannon
Cover illustrator Amanda Brannon grew up in rural north Alabama, on a mountaintop 40-acre homestead. A graduate of the Art Institute of Atlanta, Amanda spent the first part of her career working in the corporate world of advertising and design in Atlanta, and then in Alaska. By 2008, after surviving breast cancer, she realized that life is too short to not be doing what she really loves to do, which is expressing her creativity in a personal way. So she began focusing her efforts on creating and sharing her artwork through galleries and national product lines. She hopes viewers will enjoy her art with a renewed sense of curiosity and joy. SheâTMs also the author of one of AlaskaâTMs bestselling cookbooks, Every Which Way with Rhubarb, a 168-page rhubarb cookbook.
