Here is a place for nouns that I appreciate – whether they have supported me or I just enjoy supporting them. Share that love!
I’ve watched Jasmine’s career flourish over the years and I truly admire her discipline and indomitability. A great artist and wonderful friend.
CUSP By Cassie
Cassie is another amazing crafter that has had an awesome journey creatively over the last decade and I cannot wait to see what’s next! Leatherwork, patches & stickers, and all sorts of other awesome stuff can be found at her website:
King is one of my favorite Twitch streamers to rag on but it’s 10000% out of respect I swear! They make resin tumblers on Twitch and sell an array of art/craft/business supplies on their website. You might want to sign up for their newsletter in case any collabs come up!
Bread & Roses Community Fund
This Fund supports grassroots organizing in Philly that funds racial, social, and economic justice. People in the best position to create real change are those who are most affected by injustice and inequity. This shit is important to me and I’ll use my voice whenever possible to advocate.
Fleisher Art Memorial
Fleisher is a gem of the art world nestled deep in South Philadelphia. I have taken a few classes here and enjoyed some of their free programming. They believe in making art accessible to everyone, regardless of economic means. Affordable courses with PAFA-level instructors? Thank you for encouraging me to approach art in a free form.
