At a period many of my peers went back to school to get their MA, I was still raising five young kids. I felt overwhelmed with energy and curiosity. I started blogging. looking around for context, I found artists from all over the world and started to organize and curate exhibitions, before I knew it a non profit was born.
I am humbly grateful for all the help I had from other artists, volunteers, and enthusiastic art lovers as well as institutions, commercial and artist run projects. Together we where able to create exhibitions, artists in residencies, publications, online projects, workshops, school projects and much more.
I ended up learning more than any university could offer. I highly recommend this DIY experience as a strategy to dig deeper, find your voice, and network.
