What I wish to accomplish:
My goal as Gallery Director for the Town of Oxford is to help cultivate a strong, and bold relationship between our local artists, business owners and creative minds within Oxford’s blossoming community. I would like to see artists more active and relevant in the further development of our town. By allowing me to orchestrate live events, curated gallery exhibits and creative programs with the support of our town and the amazing board of members that represent OCAC - we will be able to bring an ultimate light to Oxford as a creative hub. Thus allowing everyone in our community to thrive and feel inspired in an open minded, judgement free environment. Lets Paint the World!
