Andie Aylsworth is a London based multidisciplinary installation artist. Aylsworth infuses her art practice with environmental curiosity. At the center of her work is a fascination with humankind’s relationship with the injured environment and she takes inspiration from the cohesion found between nature and humanity in indigenous cultures, especially her own as a descendant of the Quechua people of present-day Ecuador. www.andieaylsworth.com

Rhombie Sandoval’s entry into photography started after receiving a camera as a gift from the Make a Wish Foundation, a gesture arranged on her behalf due to being born with heart disease. With the camera, Sandoval realized she could navigate her shyness and connect with people using a camera to understand various vantage points, searching for and highlighting the common themes linked to one’s identity and location. She currently resides in Southern CA. www.rhombie.comCreekside Arts and the Synapsis Collective are DreamMaker Projects of the Ink People
