As artists, we’ve collectively participated in over 60 juried exhibits, partnered with several galleries, won numerous awards, and been featured in more than a dozen different publications. We’ve opened studios, chaired shows, facilitated artist interviews, taught classes and held leadership roles in local art organizations.
While the idea of Artburst Studios was born from our artist minds, our past life experiences have been integral in bringing this project to life. Our combined 7 degrees and 90+ years in law enforcement, education, and healthcare have taught us a thing or two about project development, organizational management, and facilitation strategies. Co-founding schools and launching small businesses granted us opportunities to celebrate successes and successfully recover from set-backs.
We hate to brag, but we know you’re putting your trust in us, and we want you to rest assured, knowing that we’ve been around the block once or twice. We are life-long learners, creatives at our core, and shameless do-gooders. With integrity, tenacity and humor, we launched Artburst Studios to bring more good (and more art!) into the world.
