The past two years have taught me that I do need to re-define my business goals now that I have a better idea of what works and what doesn't.
Surprisingly, I have discovered that it is important to me that my studio becomes a comfortable place for people to visit. Although, it is not realistic to just have people coming in and out 24 hours a day, I think it is feasible to make the effort to invite them into a cozy and comfortable atmosphere when they are here for appointments.

Previously an Educator, Youth Advocate, and active community member; it is still important to me to maintain a manageable level of civic engagement and Community Action Goals.
NEW this year:March 22nd, I will be hosting my first Support Women Artists Now (SWAN) Day [March 29th] party to learn more about what the artists in our community need and to unite and get to know the other women artists here. I will also be participating in the first year of the Wellsville Community Gardens project. Hopefully, this will include ART & gardening.
I am learning and working on several New-To-Me grant opportunities in hopes that at least one of them will help fund studio interests this year. When I am feeling a little more savvy about these resources, I will, as always, post & share the information I have discovered.
Undoubtedly, there will also be NEW art in the studio that I hope to share on My Youtube channel.... after I have completed the two week Video Challenge with Holly Sugrue in March. I will be talking more about the story behind the work. I am hoping to do this in a welcoming and comfortable way without Sounding Like a Self-Absorbed Artist.
I think I hear the crackling sound of ripping Velcro as I peel myself out of the stagnation rut I had fallen into...
