We’re excited to announce our artist series, where we partner with local artists based in Indianapolis who are women or women of color. The artist will have the opportunity to showcase their art in our shop to help increase their exposure in the local community with the opportunity to sell their art as well. The sale of the art will go directly to the artist.
We are excited to announce our first artist, Faith Backwell, a full-time photographer since 2011. While working in marketing for the International Masonry Institute, she picked up a camera and discovered her passion for photography. Photography chose her.
Faith is a published photographer specializing in business, commercial, event, and fashion photography. We’re excited to showcase Faith’s art starting in December 2022!
