Foreign to the world, messenger of peace.
Alien Dove is a modern day Stranger in a Strange Land for the everyday artist who often feels they're peering at life around them through the optics of a foreign body. This creative portfolio magazine will showcase one artist’s journey through time and space and the work created through inspirations that life brings.
The concept is to show love and appreciation, not just of other creatives' craft, but to the beauty and passion of their personal journey. It is a physical display of how art plays a role in life and continues to inspire. It is a project to expose the light within that connects us to the inspirational energy of others.
The Mind of Leah Merrix - Edition 1
This edition will showcases artist Leah Merrix’ journey through time and space and the work created through inspirations that life brings through the joy and pain we all must face.
When Leah brought her idea to the table to discuss launching the project, she never considered herself as being a subject for the magazine. But as the readers will soon find out, her own journey of getting to where she is today is one of inspiration and only made sense for her to be the heroine of the publication.
In the pages are some of the ups and downs which became key moments in the life of one artist. An artist that is just recently creating her own path. After years of feeling like a foreigner in most settings, she is grateful for her family and husband who have been her comfort and who have supported all the steps she decided to take on her journey.
