“Last April (2021) the house we were renting in LA was suddenly sold, we were given 45 days to move. After a frantic search for housing that we could afford there, we gave up and moved to Tucson.
We had family here and it was close enough that we could quickly get back to LA for work if needed. Our two kids had been isolated from friends and family all year, and in Tucson, they could at least be with their cousin.
I think we all expected Tucson to be hot, barren, and frankly, boring, but we’ve been pleasantly surprised by the abundance of plant and animal life everywhere we look. Due to the pandemic, we really haven’t met many people. The bike paths that encircle the city have been a life-line for our family. Additionally, the colors and textures of the desert really have inspired me to make more art.
I chose collage for this piece because I wanted to give the feeling of being immersed in the desert landscape, while expressing a sense of playfulness.”Carey Cunningham-Scott

“My favorite postcards are those that depict not only unique places, but unique moments. Living on the border of two cities, I wanted to catch that feeling of living far from… pretty much everything. T
he muse of this piece was my cat, who likes to spend the nights outside in the park my family lives by. So, this postcard is an attempt to imagine the beautiful autumn mornings my cat gets to witness!”Matvei Mozhaev
