In 2006, in a 4th story apartment in metropolitan Washington, DC, faced with empty-nest syndrome, I was frustrated with looming challenges in connecting to likeminded art professionals (back in the days of newly emerging social media). So I created a group known as Creative Art Consultants International. And each day, I researched people, I added people, I talked to people, I exchanged ideas. I tell you now, that simple activity was a lifeline. One day I woke to find that group had grown and morphed into a virtual think tank. Build it and they will come. I did, and they do.
What’s more important now, is the available resource this avails our art & culture systems work and it will help YOU achieve your goals, too. We have on hand creative professionals of every walk of life, in nearly every major location – sculptors, potters, advisors, educators, thinkers, doers, flamboyant scene makers, and literati.
As of June 2016, just a short ten years after our launch, over 17,000 global art professionals were regularly and meaningfully participating. That’s an addition of approximately 1,700 people a year, or 141 people a month, or 5 a day, WHILE holding down a full time Federal job, exhibiting art professionally, falling in love and losing love, bringing new life into this world, and relocating my home 8 times since. And that’s how I (and many other creatives) roll. Come on over and chime in. More art is more love.
