Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
First, my parents understood that I needed a creative outlet to express myself when I was a child.
Then, they sent me to art camps and gave me the tools necessary to learn about art.
I knew what I wanted to do and so I set out for an education within the arts.
I received a scholarship to the Art School at the University of Louisville.
Then I tried several different majors before deciding to do what I truly loved, photography.
Along the way, I met many artists and loved the creative energy that was happening in our community.
After graduation, I teamed up with a girl who had an MBA and together we started a gallery.
Today I am the sole owner of Revelry Boutique Gallery, which supports and promotes local artists.

Day to Day

I really enjoy curating shows, discovering new artists, and being able to show an artist who has never had the opportunity to show because no one believed in them. By using connections I have made and marketing skills I have picked up along the way, I get exposure for artists that did not have a previous outlet.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Maketing, Public Relations, Entrepreneurship.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Believe in yourself. Make connections with those around you. Intern for a gallery over the summer. If you are in art school, take some business courses that specialize in Marketing/Promotion.
