I spoke to a group of artists and makers in New York recently and after my talk a woman came up to me, opened a copy of my book on DIY publicity to a well-worn, dog-earred page and said, “thank you.” I looked down to see the opening picture of my chapter on Creative Collaborations. The picture was ceramist Rebecca Wood, a friend in her fifties who continues to inspire and encourage artists in my home of Athens, Georgia while still forging ahead with her own.
The woman thanked me for including someone a little bit older in my book, someone whose smile lines told her story, the knowing, the love of life she found in creating.
In the same way, I was looking for a cheerleader and community of support when I launched my book and consultancy last year and hit the road giving workshops across the country. I found that in Jessika and in OMHG! Thank you, Jessika, for your can-do spirit, your nurturing ways and for being, well, you. Happy Birthday!
