In 2008 in Brooklyn, New York, I met the man who would later become my husband. Two years later, we both confessed we wanted to go somewhere else. He had shown me his hometown in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. So, that was the goal.
The timing never seemed right. We both had very special niche careers which, outside of major metropolitans, are few and far between. So, we cast the net a little wider and landed in Charleston, SC, in 2013.
Eight years passed, then COVID became a world-changing and life-changing experience. We found ourselves stuck at home and daydreaming of getting a little cabin in the mountains to escape to (and maybe one day move to.) Then, somehow, that dream became a reality when we found a cabin tucked away in Saluda, NC. It was only a matter of time before we made the decision to take the leap and move their perminently.
With this move, I am taking another leap.
Throughout the nine years managing Hagan Fine Art in Charleston, I have met hundreds of artists and have given many of them advice on everything from how to approach a gallery for representation to how to structure their websites to how to photograph their art, among so much more. I've thought for many years of turning this advice into consulting. So, now that I am where I want to be, I am turning my sights to what I want to do.
I am turning my knowledge and experience into a successful business for myself. Wish me luck!
