His inspirations for design mostly come from his love for nature and culture, with the appreciation to traditional designs, handcrafting techniques, and combining with contemporary influences became the essences of his work.
Hoping to apply for a grant to create new work, exhibit, tour, or study? Granting Coach, Marilyn McIntosh, is volunteering to work with Craft Ontario members to help develop an idea into a project.
Marilyn is retired from a successful career with the following highlights:
Giving back and supporting artists in the development of a project from concept to concrete components is a passion which remains ignited in Marilyn. Some projects simply require refinement to be ready for applying to a grant. Others may need more time to hibernate into a fully developed project. Whichever it is, she has over 30 years of experience in project development and grant assessment, and has helped many to achieve success with a funding application.
Wherever you are at in your thinking about your art practice and applying for grants, talking it through with a seasoned granting coach may be just what you need to move forward.
In order to give more people opportunities, only one meeting per person will be accepted. Grant opportunities can be from any funding agency.
Craft Ontario Maker Members are encouraged to share the grant opportunity that they plan to apply for in advance of the conversation, and details are requested in the appointment booking below. During the 90-minute confidential session, you will discuss your practice, where you are at in your artistic journey, and what your aspirations are. The goals will be to work through your intentions, application questions, and to identify and develop the story that needs to be conveyed in order to complete a grant.
“I have the good fortune to continue to work with Marilyn. Her questions and insight help me talk through my plans and clarify my proposals.” Cheryl Wilson Smith, Glass Artist
