About The Artists

F.Scott Cooper

F.Scott Cooper is a typical ninth child. Realizing he was last in line for any inheritance, he decided to do what younger brothers have done for centuries. He joined the military in search of fame and fortune. Failing to find either, he now spends his time at the Air Force Academy sleeping, eating, fencing, and studying (in that order of importance). When not engaged in these activities he is probably busy wheedling his way out of trouble. Oh yeah, he writes occasionally and dares to call the result a poem.

John Cooper

WWW | Email

John Cooper is this mostly unknown entity who means no harm to this planet and spends most of his time playing with rubber bands, or just thinking about rubber bands and the neat things that one can do with rubber bands. In his other spare time he enjoys worshipping Gina, climbing trees and rocks, writing poetry, playing with dogs and rubber bands, performing open-origami surgery, arguing with popes, riding motorcycles with his clothes on, walking through walls, communing with dead cats, kissing naughty bits, finding palindromes, watching his personal identity wrestle the universe, quaffing coffee, worshipping the sacred chao, inventing games, staring at cereal boxes and bottle caps, giving money to witches, and stretching rubber bands.

Jake Davenport

WWW | Email

Jacob first learned to solve the Rubik's cube from a book when he was 10, the solution by layers, and he got pretty good at it. One girl in his 6th grade class kept messing up her cube and giving it to him to solve. She had a crush on him. He liked solving the cube as fast as possible and couldn't care less about the girl. Typical. At age 26 he had forgotten how to solve it completely, so he asked for Kristin's help. She showed him her method, solving first the corners and then the sides, which made much more sense than solving by layers. She even gave him a cube with which to practice. While waiting for John Cooper to take his turn in Arcana, he used some of Kristin's 100 cubes to spell out "Rubik's Cube" and shortly found his small artistic niche at Wunderland.

Greykell Dutton

WWW | Email

Greykell Dutton hates writing in the third person, therefore...

I've always been fascinated by the heroic way humans stand up to their oppresors and the way that some folks can live through horrific abuse and still turn out to be really neat people. I have been creating and torturing characters since I was old enough to have an imagination. If I knew where I got my ideas from, I'd probably be very frightened.

I have a great husband, Rick, and 3 kids: Kat, Nik, and Aly. Not one of us has ever been stuffed into a windowbox by an abusive parent...really!

Phyllis Holtzen


Phyllis Holtzen is Kristin's grandmother. The teddy bear in the picture was given to her by Kristin after she told Kris how sorry she was that her mother had thrown out her "dirty old" teddy bear when she was about 8 years old. Phyllis has enjoyed painting off and on for many years. She helped Kristin with some of her first creative art projects. She was trying to decide what to paint next when the Space Under the Window project began. Being an elementary school teacher for more than 20 years made Phyllis a perfect grandmother, and she communicates regularly via email with children and grandchildren all over the country. How many other 84-year-olds have a picture on the internet?

S P Kidwell


S.P. Kidwell is Greykell's little sister. No, she wasn't stuffed in a box in the space under the window either. But after submitting her entry and reading Greykell's she admits it does appear they are depressing people.

Actually S.P. is almost as cheerful as Greykell. Her hobbies are Cub Scouting (Summer camp is great fun with BB gun's and bow & arrow being the favorites), writing, amusing the kids, and avoiding house work. If truth were known the space under the window hasn't been cleaned in more than two months. Every time the books are picked up, Jimmy Grey pulls them back down the next morning. Why fight gravity and a two year old terrorist. (The bushes, however, have been cut.) S.P. works full time and does often over schedule her time.

Kristin Looney

WWW | Email

Back in college, Kristin spent several years scrawling the words 'The Space Under The Window' onto walls under windows whenever she got the chance. She found that Adults seemed to usually have enough furniture to cover up all the best spaces - and just didn't quite understand when they noticed what she was up to... although most of them never noticed. Today, even tho her friends are a far cry from your classic adult, they are no longer starving college students either and the spaces under their windows almost always seem to be covered up. Time passes.

Kristin once wrote a short story on a couch, but that is another story.

She has ventured cross-country and into Canada on her Suzuki GS500 and once contemplated motercycling across Siberia.

Claire Miller


Claire Miller is Managing Editor at Ranger Rick magazine, a nature magazine for kids. She thinks this new-fangled web publishing is really cool. "Right now (in April) I'm researching and writing stories for our October issue," she says. "It takes us more than six months from start to finish to get each article printed. It's rather nice for a change to write a story one night and see it published the next morning!"

Claire has had more than 100 magazine articles published for kids and adults. She also enjoyed teaching second grade for 12 years. She likes watching birds, hanging out with her husband, and getting lots of e-mail from her kids and mom. Someday she'd like to publish a book that pays royalties, just to see what it's like.

Jessica Ney-Grimm

Just about what you might expect: taking walks, practicing yoga, designing the boards of board games and the cards of card games, inventing garments but never sewing them, playtesting things such as Elrond's House, making lists in categories of interest to her only (spinning wheels, bobbins, nettles, and princesses), and trying to find the way with heart. Such are the events that typically occupy Jessica's stream of consciousness. And writing the oh-so-occasional poem. Of course.

Mick Sonesen

Email Mick was born in 1967 in a small city on the western coast of Japan. In the early 70's his family moved to the U.S., where he was exposed to funk music and cartoons. Despite his submission, he is completely against anything Gothic, Vampiric or anything that is cool in a self-absorbed sort of a way. In his own words: "Gothic is about barbarism and a lack of scientific knowledge, Vapirism is about parasitic attachment to something better than you are, and if I hear one more teenage toughguy use the word 'abyss' to describe his feelings..." He also is the current cat wrangler of the largest domestic cat on Earth.

Julia C. Tenney

WWW | Email

Julia secretly doesn't read poetry. She does sometimes adopt that poetic sense of futility over humanity's meager existence. (It goes so well with black). Her allegations of being an "Artist" are currently best expressed in her postcards. When she feels too stagnant, she remembers that if she were "going places", she wouldn't have any time to travel. She hopes eventually to have an office with a window, as well as the space under it.
