Going where the gypsy winds blow...
My journey as an entrepreneur began when my love of marketing, art, anthropology, and the Southwest led me to Santa Fe, NM where I founded Gypsy Wolf Marketing, a company devoted to the growth and empowerment of artists, art galleries, arts organizations, and creative entrepreneurs around the world. Through my coaching programs, products, workshops, and courses, I teach my clients how to use cutting-edge marketing and business strategies to clarify their message, consistently attract their ideal clients, automate their marketing and business processes, and create successful businesses based on their passions while creating the life they've always dreamed of. As a fiber and textile artist, I understand the unique marketing challenges that members of the arts community face.
I also maintain a presence in the corporate world where I'm the Vice President of Marketing for a global software company headquartered in Boston, MA.
I've always been a bit of a gypsy so I've taken advantage of my travels to immerse myself in different arts and cultures all over the world. These experiences are reflected in how I live my life, as well as my artwork. Art school provided me with a love of art history and the necessary technical skills in painting, printmaking, collage, textile art, jewelry design, ceramics, and weaving. And life in the Southwest provides the inspiration. I'm interested in the arts of Southern Asia, especially India, Bhutan, Nepal, and Tibet, as well as the art of Kiki Smith and Nancy Spero.
I bring my global experience in marketing and the arts to bear as the Surface Design Association's Area Representative for New Mexico. I'm also a volunteer for the Artist Training Program at the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market. From 2006 through 2012, I was a member of the Board of Directors for TransCultural Exchange, a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting international art and the understanding of world cultures through art exhibitions, cultural exchanges, and educational programs where I was responsible for the development of global marketing and fundraising campaigns.
In addition to the Surface Design Association, I'm a member of the International Polymer Clay Association, the American Tapestry Alliance, the Handweavers Guild of America, and the Textile Society of America.
I'm passionate about cultural entrepreneurship and the preservation of native arts and crafts of indigenous cultures so I actively support Kala Raksha, Girl Effect, and the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market. Beginning in 2012, a percentage of Gypsy Wolf Marketing's revenues will be donated to these organizations.
