I am an dabbling artist who loves to make stuff and share it with the world. I owned an art gallery/gift shop in downtown Menasha, Wisconsin for a while, but found that more people came in looking to sell art than to buy art. What happened even more frequently, was people coming in wanting to make art. This had actually been part of my original business plan. I wanted to set up my shop so that people could come in, pick out their supplies on a budget, sit down, make art, and socialize with other artists. Sadly, never became a reality. I would love to reopen my studio down the line when the time is right. As for now, I organize a group of many types of artists in and around the Fox Valley area who do just that... find a place to sit, drink coffee, share tips and tricks, inspire each other, work on whatever art project it is we're working on, and just laugh and have a good time! If this sounds like something you'd be interested in being a part of, please click on the link "Mary's Meetup Group" in the column to the left. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!!
