ADVICE TO EMERGING ARTISTS:

            My advice to emerging artists in the disability community is to keep learning from everyone you can. I've always said that disabilities should be treated as lived experiences, not just medical conditions. I'm always a little amazed when someone asks me if I've ever wished I could walk. My answer is no, but I was born with cerebral palsy. I can only expand my perspective by working with other people. Otherwise, it's just like asking me if I've ever thought about levitating. It's a nice thought, but not practical to my perspective.

Big news, everyone!

When I started working with VSA Ohio in 2011, I entered as an artist in the Accessible Expressions Ohio Exhibit. From there, I was a guest blogger on Arts and Events for VSAO. Now, it’s my honor to be an admin on VSA Ohio social media. I’ll be posting events, keeping everyone updated on the latest in the disability/arts community, and creating some original content.

Access is Progress.

We still need your help.
