The Last Bus Home


Joanne Taeuffer

As a 10-year-old Camp Fire Girl, I concocted my Indian name—“ShaKiWi,” Laughing Butterfly Maiden the Teller of Stories. And yes, I told stories: at the dinner table, as a newspaper reporter, as an Internet publisher. I became an artist to tell stories in a new form.

I’ve grown to love thick creamy paint, bold brush strokes, simple compositions. I learned to cherish the play of sunlight and intriguing shadows in mysterious dark colors.

And, like any good storyteller, I always leave something to the imagination of the audience.
