An online publication that strives to build a proud community of diverse voices. Pearl comes from the founder's grandmother's Yiddish name, Polina. The founder's grandparents were both artistic and creative in everything they did. Her grandfather, a writer and painter who always wanted to capture his muse, Polina, in the most beautiful of ways.

It was important to them to have many artist's voices celebrated and heard in their life. The founder wanted to continue this passion for art through Pearl Press by growing a community of artists who are looking to uplift one another.



On Crowds

A nod to Joan Didion's ruminating essays entitled "On Self Respect" and "On Keeping a Notebook." I have been thinking of crowds lately and how purposeful they have been.  Thinking of how many people it might take to make one feel crowded. I love to see photographs of multiple people, almost losing recognition of individuals because of how small they become. Think on crowds, where have you seen them, where have they been trailing off to since it is now a danger to crowd.
