Name: Blythe Pelham
Occupation: Artist, Writer, Energy Worker, Gardener, and all-around creative huming
Place of Residence: Leesburg, Ohio
Background and Personal History: Blythe was born in Seattle, Wash., and raised here, there, and everywhere — one highlight being two years of her teenage life spent living in Belgium. Blythe has been arting and writing for as long as she can remember and expects to continue doing so in many media until her lifing in this realm ceases.
Blythe’s personality and soulful make-up results in a mind that is constantly inventing, shifting, adapting, and creating from the inspiration she finds around her. She simply must create or risks losing her equilibrium. She also craves learning new methods, media, and experiences.
Current Projects: Blythe is pursuing her continued creating in the arts and enabling others to find their grounding through energy work. She is in the midst of writing a cookbook (but she’ll warn you, it’s not your mother’s cookbook), and will occasionally share bits in her blogging here. Blythe will also let everyone know as soon as it’s published, though she has found these things always take longer than hoped.
Other Fun Facts: Blythe found her husband of 30 years in the personal ads of the Weekly (a now defunct newspaper). They have three adult children, whom they unschooled in several different U.S. states. One of Blythe's underlying mantras is "Weird is good!"
