MY HISTORY and BIG VISION
I'm open to travel for in person workshops and even relocating to open training centers in collaboration with others.
I have plans for a 'Community Cottage Craft Collective'. It's the evolution of the ‘Village to Village’ movement I started in Africa in 1984, called Inspirit Arts.
I left my birthplace in Michigan to spend 18 years in Africa and Europe. Inspired by a vision to help eradicate poverty, I left University in France to start the Inspirit Arts cottage craft industry in Africa. This social enterprise raised funds for children’s causes in Kenya and Eswatini by making, and training volunteers of women’s organizations to be vendors.
My greatest gift to the world so far, was starting the now thriving rolled paper movement by going from village to village, in one African country after another, to teach destitute villagers in drought stricken areas how to upcycle paper into jewelry.
Returning stateside to Ohio in 1995, I ran after school youth programs, while studying full time, and traveling the world to source handmade fashion to sell in my pop-up vendor booth.
I've retired from vending to devote myself towards building 'The Vendor Academy' and 'The Village eStore' on this platform. They're full of products, courses and resources specifically for organizations to use in support of pop-up event vendors.
