Hope Von Stengel

I currently reside in Oneonta, NY with my husband, son, and furry friends but was born in the Philadelphia area. Almost 20 years ago I traveled out West, where I received my bachelor’s degree at the University of Oregon. I loved it so much out there that I moved to Portland, back to Eugene, then Idaho and Washington before settling here to be closer to family. Being connected to community, art, nature, culture, and family are paramount to my well being and inspire my writing and visual art.
