I’m very excited to announce that I am a recipient of the Indiana Individual Artist Grant! It’s part of the reason I have been so quiet, as well as the crazy amount of hat making I’ve been trying to do for Lakefront Art Festival.
Soooo what does getting the grant mean? It means I’ll be able to buy tons of blocks to do bigger more elaborate styles of hats! It’s scary and amazing all at the same time. Having these new blocks is going to make a huge difference in my millinery life and will give me new opportunities not only as a designer but for teaching lessons as well.
I had tons of help putting this grant together and I couldn’t have done it without my 3 amazing friends. Putting a grant together is no joke but it’s totally worth applying not only for the experience but for a chance to push yourself as a artist. Most states have programs for artist funding and I encourage all my friends to look them up and apply.
I wish I could write a bigger post but hats await me! Don’t forget to check out my events to see what I’m up to!
