BarbTUSA with ButterfliesDuring my struggle with colon cancer in 2011, I began to visualize a magical destination and marketing initiative for creative entrepreneurs to produce, perform, promote and sell. I had been watching and studying the blossoming of the creative economy for three years by then. That vision manifested into Art WOW, a digital advertising and destination arts marketing initiative, which I started to launch in Spring 2012. Months later, Upon discovering that I still had much to do in getting myself back to a healthy place; physically, mentally, and spiritually, I simmered my plans for Art WOW. Now, as 2016 is winding down I took a few moments to look in the mirror and realized a metamorphosis has occurred; I have turned into a new woman with a new attitude, and I’m preparing to roar with Art WOW in 2017!]]>
