I'm an independent curator and consultant with more than 20 years of experience supporting artists. I launched Gibbous in 2015 to deepen my relationships to committed artists. Having worked in commercial, academic, non-profit, and experimental settings, and with a studio practice of my own, I understand many of the challenges facing contemporary artists in the world today. I love attuning to individuals to divine particular action plans that give artists a game-changing boost. If you're at a pivotal moment in your creative life, I want to support you. The world needs artists to thrive and you deserve all the support you can get. I find joy in helping organizations collaborate with artists in celebratory and humane ways. I’m passionate about connecting creative people to each other. If you're at a pivotal moment in your creative life, I want to support you.
