cover artist Teeny Town Tiny Houses Can Benefit Seniors

The University of Southern Indiana (USI) is building a small, modular home on its Evansville campus to demonstrate how the tiny housing model could make independent living accessible for people of all ages and abilities. It’s part of a larger effort aimed at creating a cultural transformation related to aging in a community. The home’s small size is a selling point for people unable to maintain a larger dwelling as they age and help them remain independent. Dr. Bill Thomas, a geriatrician and national expert on aging partnering in the project, envisions a pod-like village of such “Minkas” with older people living within a community instead of being sequestered in nursing homes.

over artist Jordan Parker uses watercolors and acrylics to capture nature’s beauty and bounty across the seasons, from spring daf- fodils to fall leaves. “Autumn is my favorite season; I get inspired when I see the colors start to change,” says Parker.

The cover image, Autumn Harvest, was inspired by a still life from the artist’s garden. “I had picked some pumpkins, corn and grape leaves, and set them up as a table arrangement. It was so beautiful that I just had to paint it,” says Parker. “I put the painting up in my home every fall now.”

At a very young age, Parker was fascinated with horses and persistently worked at drawing them until “they eventually started to look like horses,” she says. Parker continued her artis- tic journey into adulthood, teaching herself how to paint and experiment- ing with techniques until she began to develop her own colorful style. Today, Parker’s prints and original paintings can be found in private collections across the Pacific North- west. The artist’s work is also sold at Revolution Gallery, in Issaquah, Wash- ington, where Parker lives with her husband, daughter, dog and two cats. View the artist’s portfolio at FineArt
