The Story behind Backyard Art Stories

Three years ago, discovering a flyer from a local artist in my mailbox sparked the idea that he could benefit from captivating images for his promotion— a seed planted in my mind. 

Subsequently, I enrolled in a 12-month mentorship program to develop the idea of storytelling.

Joined by writer Sarah Todman in 2022 & 2023, we collaborated on wordsmithing, and together, we launched the first & second editions of BACKYARD·ART·STORIES magazine. 

Since then, my journey has been a profound exploration of artists, their practices, and their needs. 

During this wonderful time, I've gained valuable insights into building a community, forging connections, and understanding how to provide support.

Above all, the most crucial lesson has been realizing how my art and practice can make a meaningful impact in assisting others.
