We stand in support of the Black Lives Matter movement

I must take a moment to say that I support the Black Lives Matter movement. I don’t feel qualified to speak further. I am educating myself. I am listening, reading, watching, and allowing change in my own perception.  I vow to continue learning and realize this is a lifetime practice. I will seek more diverse social groups, I will search for more BIPOC artists to support through my business. 
Let’s talk, let’s help each other grow, let’s be the change.
