Once upon a time there was an artist who left her 9-5 career to start her freelance journey.
She used her artisan skills to survive, yet had no idea how to make her passion into her profession...
Hence the birth of Handmade in Brooklyn founded in 2015 by this very womxn.
Film Cred: @kskhussle & @urbanmunuc
Gathering like minded womxn from all over Brooklyn by foot, corralled a beautiful community that would eventually come together monthly to share ideas, recommendations, network and experience the magic of developing our passions beyond our wildest dreams. The search for community led her to many answers and support as she navigated the beginning of her journey as an artist in business.
