When my home and studio in New Orleans flooded after Hurricane Katrina, I was able to get right back to work, and keep my commitment to be in a group show just six months later.
CERF+ first came to my attention years ago while attending the annual clay conference, NCECA. At the time I was moved by the images of artists’ studios in shambles, and grateful that such an organization existed. I had no idea how deep my gratitude would run when CERF+ became a central part of my personal and professional recovery after Hurricane Katrina.
I like to share with people every chance I get about CERF+ and the important work they do, helping artists after a disaster has struck, and educating artists about how to be better prepared for the unthinkable.
