April was sitting outdoors with Russell (yesterday's post). When I explained my photographic project, she said "Oh, I do that too". What?? Almost no one photographs strangers with permission. But she said that she was an illustrator and often photographed people whom she did not know. Amazing!

Russell spoke up and said that April was a real community mover-and-shaker, well known in the area. April said that she was heavily involved with community development, and gave me her card. It reads, "Aprilart Studios – Art to spark and inspire". Her website is HERE.
She is a strong proponent of Asset Based Community Development, and you can read about it HERE.
Nice to serendipitously meet another photographer of strangers. :-)
