My Story (In a Nutshell)
I've been an artist my entire life. I'm also a wife and a mom of two kids, two German Shepherds, and of a very particular cat named Rita.
Over the last decade, I've figured out how to make money with my passion and now own an award-winning art business here in Rhode Island.
It didn't happen overnight, and not everything I tried worked. It's been a long and winding road, full of fantastic twists and turns that has led me to this place. While working as a high school special and arts educator in the public school system, I began to hone my artistic craft. Through persistence, devotion, and the use of social media, I was able to resign from my teaching career and embark into the world of entrepreneurship. As a wife and mom, I've also lived with learning how to strike a balance.
A passion of mine is to help other artists do what I do. I strive to change "starving artist" mentalities into thriving ones, and help artists develop the business side of what they do.
