Summer 2019 Updates

open studio party

Greetings art friends!

It’s been a long time since I’ve checked in – I’ve been very busy working full-time as the Marketing & Design Coordinator at The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts! It continues to be a rewarding experience, and I enjoy finding new ways to stretch my design skills to helping this amazing local non-profit.

Now for the big news: I have a new art studio! It’s located on the first floor of an old factory building called The Web, located on Hope Street in downtown Greenfield. I got the grand tour of the whole space – it’s amazing and old and full of promise for more artsy things on the way! I’m proud to be part of the local art scene here in Greenfield.

This space took a lot of elbow grease to get ready, but with the help of my supportive family and friends (and a lot of updates by the property owner!) I was able to move in by July. Nothing like a new coat of paint to brighten up the place!

That being said, I want you all there to help me brighten it up more!

I’m pleased to be part of Community Action Pioneer Valley’s new resource directory, Look4Help, available to Franklin, Hampshire, and North Quabbin residents. I helped develop their logo, web icons, and promotional materials. Congrats on a successful launch!
