I am a longtime Royal Oak Resident-moving here from the east side before it was cool. I have been a long time volunteer in various city committees, including the Animal Shelter Committee and the Environmental Advisory Board, before joining the Arts Commission.
1.Why did you get involved with the art commission, why do you stay, how do you want to see it grow in the future?
The Commission for the Arts was well underway when I was appointed. Each year brings new opportunities to grow. Our residents and business owners are creative and want to see more art of all types. I have particularly enjoyed growing the Sharing the Warmth program over the past 5 years.
2. What is your favorite art?
While I don’t have a favorite art (too many to mention), I really enjoy stories told through textile/fiber art.
