what art is, but creativity shouldn’t be boxed in. That’s what makes it so beautiful. The individuality in our talents, thoughts and style is what makes us unique. When I think of the different professions or hobbies that the people in my life have, I can see the creativity, innovation or artistic expression that each person possesses that makes them successful and creative in their own way. One of my favorite things to do is to watch my kids go through creative processes. Sometimes it is quite literal by making up a new song on the piano, writing a story, or creating a work of art, but other times it is experiencing the gift of their imaginations while they play. One of my favorite things to watch is when my second son plays baseball in the backyard. He imagines an entire game and will throw the ball in the air to pretend he’s catching a fly ball and” throw” it in to home. He suddenly becomes the runner and slides in to home barely making it. He used to play like that all the time, but as he gets older, I see it less and less. I love watching his imagination at play, and it

ent players on the field, as I know to drink it in and appreciate it while it lasts.   The creativity that we had when we were younger morphs into different versions as we become adults.  Sometimes it seems to silence in some and comes alive in others. Oftentimes it is easy to see that creativity in children because their imaginations are so transparent as the play out loud. If we look around at the adults in our lives, we will see creative expression in so many things besides what typically is viewed as artistic.

Johnson County Lifestyle | February 2019


IN 2009, A TEAM OF ARCHEOLOGISTS DISCOVERED A 35,000-YEAR-OLD TREASURE WHILE DIGGING IN THE SOUTHWEST REGION OF PRESENT-DAY GERMANY. While its age alone was enough to make it a significant anthropological find, age was not the only remarkable aspect about it. In a time when survival was the primary concern, it was surprising to find our ancestors took time to make musical instruments. A small flute carved from bone and ivory told the story of how ancient, and how intrinsic, the link is between humanity and music. It’s the universal expression of music that inspire husband-andwife duo Brandon and Teryn Draper to breathe life into their vision of living in a more unified world. The two recognize that the presence of music in each culture makes it a powerful point for connection. At its core, Drum Safari is designed to blur cultural lines through rhythms found across the globe. The program incorporates more than 400 percussion instruments from places such as Turkey, Mali, Ghana, India and Brazil.   The program observes its greatest benefits when focusing on areas concentrated with immigrant families and children, Brandon says. For some children who may be first-generation Americans hailing from foreign countries, hearing a familiar rhythm can bring a powerful sense of familiarity, safety, and inclusion. “We all have a rhythm inside our bodies,” Brandon says. “Our heart beats the same rhythm whether we are from Nigeria or from Niagara, New York. Through our programs, we hope to give children and their families opportunities to make rhythmic connections with cultures from around the globe. Most of our programs revolve around music, but we also provide an authentic, hands-on geography experience. It’s a powerful combination that helps to show how beautifully 'mixed' our world can be.” While instruments are used, they are not the end of the Drum Safari’s education curriculum. The instruments are an accompaniment to lessons taught about animals, about health and wellness, even about mindfulness and self-awareness.   After an instrument is introduced and played, it is then passed out to its audience. As the instruments are passed around, the children are challenged to “look for animals” with each animal assigned a rhythm and a phrase. In addition to a rhythm and a phrase, each animal also represents a particular lesson. For instance, the Jaguar is the embodiment of physical strength, energy, and a healthy heart. When the jaguar is introduced to the audience, the children are encouraged to run in place and “jump” like the powerful cat.  “They don’t just learn some [facts and figures] and go away with information,” Brandon says. “We are drawing the creativity out of them. That way, it is theirs to own.”

(CON TI N U ED)

Brandon is a professor of music at the University of Kansas. After 17 years of teaching in public schools, Teryn made the decision to homeschool their daughters and to manage Looking Up Productions along with multiple Drum Safari teams. When they are not educating minds, they pack their instruments and their young daughters, Eva, 9, and Ivy, 6, to share their program with youth across the Midwest and Mountain regions. “We want to empower children and families to play together,” Brandon says. “We are trying to help all of us learn more about each other. As our mentor, Bongo Barry, said, 'the family that plays together, stays together.'” After the two met while studying percussion at Bethany College, Brandon and Teryn seemed destined to fill their lives with music. They founded Drum Safari in 2003 under their parent company, Looking Up Productions, Inc. which functions as the couple’s musical-consulting entity. While living south of Santa Fe, NM at the time, they initially started by hosting free interactive workshops at local community centers. Little did they know how vast their program would reach only years later. Since last year alone, Drum Safari has employed four separate percussion performance groups, hosted more than 200 live shows, and engaged more than 32,000 children. While the structure of the shows may have a thread of similarity, the programs are ever-evolving and offering new content each year. Drum Safari partners with other local programs that center on music, such as Harmony Project KC. Drum Safari’s ambition is to pilot new programs, lay more groundwork for local festivals, and actively seek out and provide programming for areas that may not have the resources to promote musical and cultural education for children. By partnering with like-minded organizations, the Draper family hopes to create a movement that expands far beyond the mountains of Colorado with plans to eventually include Europe in their travel itinerary. Drum Safari is offering classes in the spring and fall of 2019 for ages 6 to 12 through the Blue Valley Recreation Center.

Whole-hearted Care THE WARD FAMILY HEART CENTER AT CHILDREN’S MERCY HOSPITAL

IT CAN BE OVERWHELMING TO LEARN YOUR CHILD OR UNBORN CHILD HAS A HEART CONDITION. That’s why Kansas City’s own Children’s Mercy has developed a full-service cardiology and cardiac surgery program to help families throughout their journey. “We consider it a privilege to provide care for children and families during some of their most difficult and stressful times,” says Alison Bender, administrative director of the Ward Family Heart Center at Children’s Mercy. “We are ready to provide top-ranked, comprehensive care for children with any type of heart condition.” At the Ward Family Heart Center, families can expect extensive experience from knowledgeable and personal care providers. That knowledge along with a commitment to ongoing innovative research translates into some of the best care in the nation with outstanding survival rates. In the most recent U.S. News and World Report Best Children’s Hospitals list, the Cardiology and Heart Surgery program at Children’s Mercy was ranked in the nation’s top 15 percent of nearly 200 children’s hospitals surveyed. 16

Johnson County Lifestyle | February 2019


“Our team of 35 pediatric cardiologists and heart surgeons, together with specially trained nurses and staff members, work tirelessly to give children the best possible care and outcomes,” Bender says. “The size and scope of our program means we’re always ready to care for children, no matter how rare or complex their need.” Because children with heart problems often have other health conditions, the heart center team works closely with the hundreds of pediatric subspecialists available at Children’s Mercy. Having specialists work closely together helps ensure a comprehensive care plan throughout each patient’s journey. The multidisciplinary heart center team offers many super subspecialty clinics like electrophysiology, heart failure and transplant, preventive cardiology and many more. These subspecialty clinics continue to grow. In less than four years, the area’s only pediatric heart transplant program has performed 18 heart transplants. “We were very proud to be able to bring pediatric heart transplant to the region. The Heart Transplant Program provides care for children who have no other medical or surgical options to fix a failing heart without serious risk,” Bender says. In addition to the Heart Transplant program, Bender highlights the following accomplishments over the past decade: + The Outreach Program helps ease the burden of frequent travel for families who live outside Kansas City by providing high-quality outpatient care at numerous cities for patients throughout Kansas and western/southern Missouri. + CHAMP has made it possible for more children with single-ventricle heart disease to safely live at home between surgeries. Children with heart conditions often need complex care and close monitoring, which used to mean a long hospital stay was inevitable. By developing the Cardiac High Acuity Monitoring Program (CHAMP) app, Children’s Mercy is leading the industry in groundbreaking technology to allow real-time home monitoring. Because of the success of CHAMP, Children’s Mercy is now sharing this technology with other pediatric cardiology programs across the nation. + The Thrive Program was launched in 2016 to provide comprehensive support for patients and families navigating the overwhelming emotions and complexities of coping with a heart condition. The Thrive team includes specialists from social work, psychology, child life, music therapy, financial counseling, chaplaincy and palliative care.

IS

WHERE COLOR AND PATTERN COME TO PLAY. Morgan Georgie and Carrie Kiefer are not only founders of this fun Kansas City-based art and design partnership but are also best friends. “We studied graphic design together at the University of Kansas School of Fine Art,” say Georgie and Kiefer. “We believe it was no coincidence that we first met in a typography class (even though we had no idea that we’d eventually start Ampersand together). After graduation, we were both hired by Hallmark Cards where we worked together for almost a decade. After about two years, although our careers were fulfilling, we naturally started talking about starting a company together. We’d always dreamed of paving our own path and making our own unique mark on the world. After scheming and countless late nights of freelancing on the side, we decided to start a business creating patterns and artwork for modern, everyday living.” Georgie and Kiefer named their design venture after the ampersand (&) - the symbol in the alphabet that gets to have a little more fun. The ampersand also represents their combined work effort. “In addition to the bold scale and color palette in our art, another aspect that makes us stand out is the simple fact that our business is a partnership between two best friends,” they say. “We realize a partnership like ours is rare and really special, and we believe 100 percent that the business would never exist if it weren’t both of us doing it together.”

Their inspiration to create comes from the world around them: “We find inspiration everywhere we go, from the floor of a favorite restaurant to an accidental color palette of painted buildings placed next to each other. Traveling and experiencing new things, whether it’s food, art or an experience, always gives us a creative boost. Our work is frequently full of bright color, so we joke that we never grew out of that whole rainbow-loving phase from our childhood in the ‘80s.” Ampersand has collaborated with companies including Target, Crate&Kids, Hallmark Cards and West Elm in addition to their own line of products. “Some of our most popular products have been stationery, housewares, and kid’s room décor, including rugs, bedding sets and fun coordinating pillows. We’ve also loved seeing the rise in KC pride and the popularity of our Kansas City tees, mugs and glasses.” Kansas City continues to play a major role in the lives of both women. “The two of us grew up in Kansas City. We both thought we might move somewhere else in our early twenties but always planned to return. When we got job offers at Hallmark Cards right out of school, those plans quickly changed. We knew it was too good of an opportunity to pass up.” They say that when they moved back to Kansas City after college, they experienced their native city in a new way and fell in love with it all over again. “We lived (you guessed it) right next to each other in the SoHo Lofts and Quality Hill Apartments, worked downtown and frequented the many restaurants and bars that Kansas City had to offer. Now, living in Prairie Village and Fairway with five kids between our two families, we are positive that choosing our hometown as a place to raise our own kids was the best decision. The way Kansas City has changed even in the past 15 years is astonishing. There are so many different areas to explore—we love trying all the new restaurants, nightlife, children’s parks and activities. We are now on a new adventure of falling in love with Kansas City through our children’s eyes.” Georgie and Kiefer say that 2019 will be an exciting year of expansion for Ampersand with new launches including a textile collaboration with two collections of patterned fabric by the yard, as well as new lines of pillows, rugs and kitchen accessories. “We are also looking to expand our team in the next few months as we grow our own product line and continue to maintain our licensing partnerships,” they say.

STATES

(CON TI N UED)

STATES IS THE AMERICAN ANSWER TO AN ATHLETIC STYLE THAT HAS BEEN POPULAR IN EUROPE FOR A WHILE. WHAT BRANDS INSPIRED YOU? Like any great business we spend a lot of time studying competing brands, but to be honest we are as much influenced by great brands (not just apparel ones) that have created a devoted and loyal following - those that stand for a mission bigger than selling product, but telling a story, giving its followers (in our case soccer players, fans, followers) a voice. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PIECE OR COMBO FROM THE NEW LINE? We divide our product lineup between two categories ‘on-pitch’ and ‘off-pitch’, but with the idea that all States’ products are soccer-inspired with technical and performance properties.  On-Pitch: Designed with an eye to the specifications of on-field performance. Tested at the highest level by world-class players. Our on-pitch shirts feature soft, breathable fabric with moisture wicking technology, four-way stretch, perforated venting, and flat lock seams. Shorts feature functional stretch, an inter-lock fabric in the waistband and side paneling and strategic ventilation through a stretch mesh gusset. The shorts retain their form even while wicking away moisture and remaining lightweight during the toughest training session.  Off-Pitch: Designed with an eye to post-game lifestyle and off-field wear. Athletic-lifestyle apparel with an ability to stand up to performance standards and fashion demands. Off-pitch shirts are designed to have the feel of a favorite broken-in tee but with the temerity to withstand a rough or workout session.  The States hat features lightweight technical fabric that wicks sweat and repels moisture and stains.  WHERE WILL STATES BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE? All of our products will be available on our website at States.soccer. The site is much more than just an eCommerce platform; it is a story-telling destination with editorial content and visual identities that tell the narratives of the sport in this country. WHAT LED YOU TO BECOME PERSONALLY INVOLVED IN CREATING A CLOTHING LINE FROM SCRATCH? The meteoric rise of the sport in this country is nothing short of amazing, and we believe we are still in the early innings. As we sat around as a group, we felt that among the different business verticals of the sport, apparel represented an underserved market and one lacking a clear sport-associated identity. Almost all the other large U.S. sports clearly have a brand tied to their rise in popularity almost synonymously, track & field, football, baseball, yoga, surf/skate… we aim to be this for Soccer in America.

The false mindset of fixing it later Individuals facing a divorce or family law matter are often faced with difficult decisions. Their spouse (or the other party to the family law case) may have an attorney. They indicate that their attorney is simply going to draw up the paperwork to conclude the case quick. When faced with this, many decide not to get a lawyer. Their mindset is that although the settlement paperwork is flawed in many respects, they can simply go back and fix it later. In other words, the view of some is that they should simply agree to the settlement that is being proposed. That will make the divorce or family matter end. After the case is done, many think they will just come back later and fix what was wrong with the original agreement. For example, if there are children, and a prior child custody or support order, they figure that they will just modify it later. This strategy is based on an incremental view that you can simply bite off certain parts of the case (like getting divorced) and then later deal with the other issues in the future. Often, this approach is based on saving 30

attorney fees or keeping things civil with their soon-to-be ex-spouse (or the other party). The problem is that modifying a prior court order is not simple or easy. It can be harder to fix something that was not right to begin with than to simply make sure it was fair and just from the start. This is because to modify a prior court order as to custody or support, a party typically has to show a change of circumstances of a substantial and continuing basis. In other words, one cannot come back to court with the incremental argument that they agreed to what they originally agreed to just to get the case done, but that it was not really right from the start. In most courts, this argument will not work. A party has to show that something is now different. They have to show that the difference is something significant and continuing. For many parties, this can be a tough standard to meet in court. This means that many parties who simply agree to a bad deal to get it done may end up facing a few problematic situations: • One, it might be that they end up being stuck with it and are never able to fix the bad parts of the original judgment

or order. Two, even if a party is successful in obtaining a modification, many spend a lot more money in the long run on attorney’s fees trying to obtain a modification than if they simply had it done right from the start. • Three, in terms of property and debt division in a divorce, this is almost always non-modifiable (meaning the you cannot come back to court later to change the original settlement). This is why parties who have a mindset that they are going to fix the bad parts of their divorce or family law settlement later are often missing the mark. It is almost always vital to make sure everything is correct from the start.

ROM CORE O FRINGE

HOW BALLERINA JENNIFER TIERNEY FOUND HER FASHION VOICE IN KC ARTICLE LISA MOYER PHOTOGRAPHY PAUL VERSLUIS AND PROVIDED

RISK-TAKER JENNIFER TIERNEY MADE THE LEAP FROM THE BALLET STAGE TO THE FASHION RUNWAY LOOK EFFORTLESS. A classically trained ballerina who has performed all over North America, Tierney took her dance experience and flung herself body and soul into a fashion label that’s causing ovation within the regional design world. KC has taken notice, inviting her back again this year for KC Fashion Week’s 2019 Fall/Winter show. As the owner and director of the American Dance Center in Overland Park, Tierney was already renown for her artistic influence over the past 12 years directing hundreds of dance students ages 3-18 in full-scale productions. The costuming required for these performances became the platform to showcase Tierney’s latent design skills. Of necessity, she learned to sew. She learned to pattern. She experimented with fabric in motion. From stage wear to dance wear to activewear to runway to women’s wear to swimwear, Tierney has embraced it all, giving herself design permission to go full extension. “There isn’t an aspect of design that I feel I would avoid at this point,” Tierney says. “I don’t mind taking risks, even though it’s not always welcomed as much as the safe choices. I like to find an idea and explore every square inch of space in it - from the core to the fringe.” The result is exciting yet still evolving, as evidenced by the three-year-old J.Tierney Designs, the fashion leg of Tierney’s entrepreneurial world. “I have a couple of collections in the works for both children’s clothing and swimwear. Even though I’ve been super fortunate to receive some initial success, this company is still in its infant stage. That’s what I love most about it. I’m still finding my voice.”

FROM CORE TO FRINGE

(CON TI N U ED)

Larry Levenson photography

That voice has been described as iconically nostalgic, classically vintage, unashamedly feminine, and no matter how big some of her designs are, her collection ideas always begin with one “teeny tiny spark.” She says: “One color. One shape. One abstract idea. From there, every element is considered and woven into the core. From the models chosen, to their runway walk and lineup, to accessories, hair, makeup, shoes and music — each element is incredibly important and considered, and I am so appreciative to every artist involved in the process.” Mixing large-scale bold with impeccable details is a life skill in which Tierney excels. As costume designer for the professional company Concept Zero Contemporary Dance (Summer 2019), Tierney interprets into fashion the work of esteemed co-director and choreographer Kristopher Estes-Brown, whom Tierney calls her “forever best friend,” and whose work is a revelation. Tierney says she was influenced in life by her French grandmother who sewed dresses for her and inspired her

Tierney retired from dancing professionally only two years ago, but she still retains her inner ballerina. A 4-year-old student of hers recently boasted, “My ballet teacher is a REAL ballerina NOT a pretend one, is even prettier than Ariel, and she smells like cupcakes.” Tierney, a Sacramento native, says she adores Kansas City and plans to continue to contribute to the dance, music, and fashion threads here. “I’ve visited almost every major city in the country thanks to my dance career, and I can confidently say that Kansas City is my favorite. The arts are alive, well and supported in Kansas City, especially for our size. Each art community is incredibly welcoming and motivated to be inclusive, to collaborate, and to continue to push boundaries and thrive for the benefit of everyone who calls KC home.” Look for Tierney’s upcoming showings at Omaha Fashion Week ‘19 as well as KCFW ’19. This spring, Tierney will pres-

THE

LOCAL

ARTIST BEHIND SNOWBALL 7449 STUDIOS CREATING PHOTOREALISTIC PAINTINGS OF FAMOUS ATHLETES, ANIMALS AND ENTERTAINERS FOUND IN KANSAS CITY AND BEYOND. His earliest memories and love of art go all the way back to age 5. “My father introduced me to drawing at the age of 5, which led to simply looking at objects and attempting to recreate what I was seeing with a pencil and paper,” Couch says. “From that point forward, I began to challenge myself, taking on more complicated subject matters  and never really looked back. Creating art became something of an obsession for me, partially because I began to realize early on that not everyone was able to do what I was capable of, and it became very therapeutic for me as well.”

Couch always lets his artwork do the talking. “My style is photorealistic, and I gravitate toward subject matter that is relatable. My intentions are always to tell a story visually without having to provide any additional explanation. I am inspired by the idea that my work might make somebody smile, make people happy or, at the very least, feel an emotional pull of some kind.” His most popular works of art involve his favorite subjects of sports and entertainment. “They include Eric Hosmer's reckless pursuit of home plate during game five of the 2015 World Series, George Brett showing the kind of focus and determination that made him a first ballot Hall of Famer, Indiana Jones with his iconic whip in one hand and a machete in the other, and a basset hound named Halo wearing a Royals baseball cap looking out the window of my friend's truck. I have always loved doing portraiture, often based on sports or entertainment — people who are interesting because of what they represent and animals both in the wild or domesticated.” Creating artwork for a museum, professional soccer club and a local winery are currently in the works. “My focus is to establish my brand, look for opportunities to expand my reach and develop subject matter that people find interesting. I am working on a piece for the Negro League Museum here in Kansas City and hope to have more details soon about some Sporting Kansas City artwork. I’m also in discussions with a local winery to produce some pieces for them.” Couch is proud to call Kansas home: “Kansas City has always been home to me, but even if I wasn't born and raised here, I personally think that Kansas Citians are genuinely some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Anytime there is a need in our community, Kansas City comes through in the clutch. I currently live in Olathe with my beautiful wife and three amazing kids. I couldn't do any of this without their support.”
