Gifting the artist community


Like all of you, I am many things – I am an activist, a writer, a teacher, a dreamer, a dog lover and most importantly, an artist.

Oftentimes, I am asked how I get it all done. The answer is simple; with the help and support of wonderful organizations like the Los Angeles Art Association. Serving over 700 artists, including myself (two gallery exhibitions and the opportunity to participate in a year-long artist circle dedicated to honing our craft), LAAA provided 36 scholarships to economically challenged artists, presented 25 exhibitions at Gallery 825, 10 offsite exhibitions, 48 artist critique groups, 4 full day artist training workshops and 8 artist talks.

LAAA provides oportunities for emerginig artists to help shape and change the world around us. Art is a powerful tool for social change; one I personally was allowed to explore thanks to programs and support of LAAA. Art enlivens the mind, quickens the heart, and inspires the senses.

I’m proud to be giving this holdiay season to the Los Angeles Art Asscoiation. Please consider joining me in your charitable donations this year. Art has the power to shape our reality. Los Angeles Art Association, with the help of your donations, provides a platform for artists to instrument that change.

If you can’t make a donation at this point, please help me reach my goal by sharing this page on your social media page(s): Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or Instagram- whatever you think is best. Or, even better, please send an e-mail to your friends on my behlaf to people you think might be interested in contributing (and of course please don’t forget to include a link to my page!).
