About the dragonfly…

A group of insects "known for their wings but named for their teeth," the small insect is a nearly universal cultural symbol of transformation. It's Sarah Sadie's personal Patronus. It's also a pretty good metaphor for the work Studio Sadie does: working with people in creative emergence, helping them find their wings...and also remember their teeth. "Find Your Fierce" is one of our catchphrases around here.

Plus, their wings are glittery and their bodies are bright colors. And they eat mosquitoes.
