Jennifer Pastiloff, Beauty Hunter, is a writer and yoga teacher living with her husband in Los Angeles when he’s not on an airplane. She travels the world with her unique workshop: The Manifestation Workshop: On Being Human-a hybrid of yoga, writing, sharing out loud, and occasionally a dance party. It's an experience that has been described as distinctly NOT "woo-woo," unpredictable, heart-mending and sometimes messy- just like life. You do not have to be a good yogi, or writer. Just a human being with a body. Jen has been featured on Good Morning America, New York Magazine, CBS News and more for her unique style of teaching. She’s developed a massive and loyal following from her personal essays. She studied poetry and writing at NYU and Bucknell University and is currently finishing her first book, "Beauty Hunting."

I am Marieke Middendorp, a freelance illustrator working as Studiopie.nl. I live in Groningen, the Netherlands, with my two lovely kids. Im so attracted and inspired by the power of imagination and I adopted a quirky, non-realistic style as it represents who I am.  For me it's important to convey my feelings and I want to bring out a message rather than just make something beautiful. That's why I love to work with Karen; so I can be able to compliment her meaningful words with my images.
