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 with acrylics for 2018 and 2019. My art shows have make money for charity. One of my favorite charities is ACORD Food Pantry.
Artist Statement: VISIONARY FACES is meant to inspire us as a community to take action in our own way. Mother Theresa, along with seventeen other role models for peace, are represented in this traveling art exhibit.
