The Essex County Artist Fund is Essex County Community Foundation’s response to the immediate and everyday needs of artists to be supported and lifted up across the county and across sectors. At ECCF, our philosophy is to build a creative ecosystem focused on awareness and appreciation for arts and culture, capacity building, collaboration, and cultural planning. Individual artists and arts/culture organizations are key to this network. www.eccf.org/creative-county.

Creative Practice: I have been working professionally as a performer, choreographer, and dance teacher for the last five years. I’ve worked for North Shore Music Theatre, and local dance studios in the area.
Artist Statement: As artists, it’s our job to convey a story that helps our audiences escape reality. In a time like this, we need our audience, and our audience needs us to support each other mentally and socially.
