Welcome to Embrace Creatives
You have enough to do. Let EC bring the art.
I know how frustrating it is to find art you truly connect with and brings you joy. Most people don’t know exactly what they should be looking for, get frustrated with too many options, and are not confident that what they’re buying is the best choice for their space. The most common questions I hear are:
- What other options are there besides paintings?
- How can I tell if the artists are reliable and experienced?
- Who can help me find the best artwork?
Welcome to this special place, built around a personal passion: matching the trade, business owners, and collectors searching for fabulous artwork and design objects with quality, local pieces crafted by vetted, American creators who infuse their soul into their work and rise to my strict business standards.
Too busy to look for art on your own? Allow me to work with you! I will take over the sourcing responsibilities, manage custom artwork projects, and handle delivery and installation. I become your art partner so your brilliant purchases are delivered on time and on budget – allowing you to breathe easier.
Seriously, I love what I do! Collaborating with clients like you to end the frustration of art buying and empower my artists is why I developed Embrace Creatives.
Let’s begin your art journey together!
Curious about me?
The first thing people tell me after we speak for the first time is that they can “see” my passion for what I do. And I truly do love matching EC artwork with collectors, business owners, and interior professionals.
An award winning artist in high school, I attending the University of Michigan School of Art & Design which served me well but halfway through I became antsy and decided to move to New York to study fashion at Fashion Institute of Technology. After college I never stopped creating – my paintings have been exhibited in Metro Detroit, New York, New Jersey, Virginia and Pennsylvania and hangs in private collections. My art jewelry garnered press, including the premier fashion trade publication, Women’s Wear Daily, The Gem Trade Association, National Jeweler, the Retail Jeweler, the Chicago Sun Times, and more.
As a business professional, I worked for Perry Ellis Portfolio Menswear and then Isaac Mizrahi as the Director of Merchandising and Operations. After thirty years raising my three children on the East Coast, I moved back home to Detroit in 2014 and entered the workforce as the Manager of Lawrence Technological University’s Detroit Center for Design and Technology. In 2021, LTU brought in as their College of Art and Design’s External Outreach, Social Media, and Events Manager.
When COVID hit I saw galleries and retail facilities failing – I knew I had to kick up the pace and dive in to truly bridge the gap between buyers and artists. I launched my Embrace Creatives full service art advising firm and online showroom in January, 2021. Sales were instantaneous and things haven’t slowed. I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to match artwork with big time buyers like Muguel McKelvey, co founder and former chief culture office of WeWork, global corporations like Siemens, local small business owners, and national collectors. I have BIG plans for Embrace Creatives and am excited to see what the future holds.
