About Us

Welcome to “Your Art Matters,” the conversation series where I bring to you the people who have influenced, inspired, guided, shared, and supported me along the path that has lead me to this very moment. I wouldn’t be who I am today without knowing them, and I wanted to share their journeys in art with you.
