Amy Bader is a bit of a jack-of-all-trades. A photography course in high school sent her to college with a journalism degree in mind, but some surprises along the way led to a career in veterinary medicine.

When she isn’t chasing her boy/girl twins, helping her older son with homework, washing the dog, or cooking a meal -- she is probably watching some new tutorial or dreaming of art supplies. It’s a crazy life, but a good one.

  “For last year’s words belong to last year’s language And next year’s words await another voice.” T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets While I am a photographer, I have long been a writer, and so words are very important to me.  Five years ago I learned about picking one little word for the new year.  I’ve […]

You’ve Got Mail

I have a confession — I am a trash picker.  Yes, a dumpster diver.  A slam-on-the-breaks-to-check-out-what-is-on-the-curb girl.  Our first couch was off the curb in the Art Museum district of Philadelphia — great piece, bad upholstery.  Entire slipcover, and viola!  Most of our dressers come second hand … thank you coat of paint!  For awhile […]
