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: Art Director/Fine Artist
Artist Statement: Much of my art is from found object in trash on streets or people’s basements. By up cycling this “trash” I turn them into fresh new pieces of art instead of adding to a landfill
