About Terri Frohman
A Jewrican, Sagittarius Hell's Kitchen native, who's preferred beverages are whiskey & chai lattes. Terri Frohman Founded Handmade in Brooklyn Collective Inc. in 2015. Currently living and working in Brooklyn, she is a full-time Mixed Media Artist, Coach, Speaker, Teacher, and Mentor.
SUNY New Paltz & NYU Alumnus, Terri was a successful Art Educator and administrator for over a decade. She represented the NYC & NYS Board of Arts Education Association, taught grades K-12, led educational workshops and initiated a variety mentorship programs for new educators.
In 2015, she began a new professional chapter as a full-time mixed media artist and Founder of Handmade in Brooklyn, a.k.a Art Mom Coach.
She participated in markets, popups, and any other opportunity that would develop her skillset as a woman in business. As challenging as it was, she had little guidance on how to BE an artist in business and invited fellow local artists into her studio, to grow a strong network of a community, hence Handmade in Brooklyn Collective was born.
Kira Klein, Film Maker
I'm working on an upcoming event I'm hosting for my film release. She helped me find and curate a space to throw the event in, counseled me about how to handle future interactions (she basically put me onto MAJOR game) of this kind, and she helped me organize the technicalities of the event. Basically, she was MOM; she listened to and interpreted my vision perfectly, and was extremely professional throughout. I definitely plan to work with Terri in the future, and can't wait to join the physical manifestation of her vision "The Creative Haus."
HMB Artist in Residence
I joined HMB as a photo intern a year ago and in that time I have come to look at the collective as a sort of home away from home. There is far more that is shared during the monthly meetups than just arts and business- we support each other through our struggles as humans in this world and also celebrate the triumphs. Terri allows for all our voices to be heard and has pushed me to grow in ways I did not even know I wanted.
Robin Erfe, Jeweler
When I met Terri, I knew she was genuine and cared deeply about helping women find success. As soon as we started working together through career counseling, I felt like she understood me. She pin pointed the areas where I needed help and customized our career sessions to me. My biggest fear around career stems from how overwhelming it all can be. Terri saw that and devised a plan to help me breakdown and organize my goals in actionable and attainable ways.
