I am an art collector and arts advocate. I am currently the Digital Communications Director at First Impressions, Integrated Marketing Solutions, and serve on the festival planning committee for the Monte Sano Art Festival and on the board of the Madison City Farmers Market. Previously, I was the Program Manager for the Kentuck Arts Center and Art Festival and a visual arts instructor in Northport, Alabama. My grandmother, Lydia MacDonald, was a local artist and member of the Huntsville Art League. Watching her work and taking classes with her initiated my love of art at a young age. I’ve been involved in the arts, one way or another, ever since.
