For those who aren't familiar with Anne Jess of the Doodle Biz and the Thriving Communities Board, she has a unique talent for capturing the essence of storytelling through her art. Her latest project at the Thriving Communities Gathering 2023 showcases this gift spectacularly. Anne's large canvases serve as a visual storyline of the event, where each stroke and color brings to life the varied tales and sentiments woven through the films and speakers who presented. Through her artwork, she provides a dynamic and colorful retrospective of the communal narratives and the spirit of connection that animated this year's gathering. Thank you, Anne!
