Good stories compel us to keep the goodness going.
Linnea Head has spent her life inspired by animals and wildlife. When a friend commissioned her to paint Cincinnati Zoo’s beloved Fiona, she saw it as a chance to capture the whole story of struggle and joy that Fiona’s life has told so far.
We loved talking with Linnea about what it means to capture the way things are in order to make them better. The visual arts can help us pay attention to the way things really are and guide us in our efforts to keep making them better. Here’s her story of painting Fiona so that all us creatures can inhabit a kinder world.
