Behind the Curtain
Meet Vandra Pentecost Linder, artist and illustrator, in this issue of our newsletter.


Behind the Curtain:  
Meeting the people who make Eco Partners possible

For the next several issues, we will be introducing the people "behind the curtain." These are the people who take the raw material -- the written text -- and make the newsletters happen. They lay out the newsletters, create the art, proofread the articles, translate for the foreign languages, fold the newsletters to your liking, and more.


Working for Eco Partners came naturally for artist
Vandra Pentecost Linder. She was already connected to both the environment and illustrations.
"I am an advocate to help provide education resources to youth to help them create a better interaction with and awareness of our environment," she said.


Pentecost Linder also is the Drawing and Painting Department Chair at the Indianapolis Art Center, where she teaches "a variety of drawing and painting classes for teens and adults." With her husband, she co-owns Linder Design, a company where she "specializes in illustration and graphic design, and provides technical and consultant support for public mural and chalk events."


ForTrash Talk!, Pentecost Linder provides illustrations for the text articles and art and layout for the inside pages.


"I have worked on an e-version ofTrash Talk! for a client as of last year, illustrated a Household Hazardous Waste folder with additional work sheets, created a large coloring page mural for a school project, plus a few other specialty projects," she said. 

In her spare time, Pentecost Linder creates art for fine art exhibits, reads, gardens, and keeps bees. As a gardener, she has found it important to practice environmentally-friendly habits.


"As a gardener, I compost spring through fall lawn debris for our perennials," she said. "I also helped establish composting bins and rain water collecting with our community gardener members."
