ART, Cocktails

These intimate gatherings of 20-25 were birthed from a deep desire to connect the many inspiring women I come across through my art. Whether a client, close friend or acquaintance. I want to get to know you better while also connecting you to my network.

There is no better time in history for us as women to unite.


Meet, Support, Collaborate & Rise!

"Women have faced a historical imbalance, where leadership potential was confined to the home. We have been assigned the role of supporting men in their pursuit of leadership, rather than championing our own ambitions.

Networking and self-promotion, are skills that have been omitted in the grooming of our girls, where our boys have been taken under the wing and taught to lead. It’s our duty to navigate these channels and pass it on to other women and to our daughters.

"The all-women's art and networking event was a celebration of women's creativity and talent. It was so refreshing to be in a space where women's voices were amplified and recognized. I connected with incredible artists and felt a sense of solidarity that will stay with me forever."
