Last summer, one of my really good friends and coworkers came into my office to tell me she was quitting to pursue her life long dream of creating art full time and becoming an artist. If you've ever day dreamed about ditching the world of suiting to follow a passion but feared taking a non traditional career path, you can understand why my jaw was on the floor, my heart was inspired and my brain a bit envious of her courage all at the same time.
Fast forward a year, Danielle has made her "childhood fantasy" a reality and is living her dream each and every day by making her world her office. I, on the other hand, am giving it to the man by wearing a cobalt blazer to work today. Take that, Corporate America.
Danielle is also the editor of The Ephemeral Market-- a space to highlight art engagement and other local artists in our community. I fell in love with Whitney Staiger and UDOP Jewelry after reading her interview on TEM and am so excited to be hosting a giveaway with Danielle for one reader to win a handmade piece of Whitney's collection.
