Collaborative Artworks...

started off as a small art and craft business in 1999. Since then we've incorporated into a non-profit agency formed to serve those who follow the muse and aspire to create!

Our focus...

extends to the marketing and sales of art and the written word, both as means of income, and as a means of fostering ongoing participation in our communities and beyond!

Staff as well as members have degrees in art or psychology, and all share their unique life experience.


The artist members...

pair their keen interest in art, craft, and writing/poetry with the sometimes overwhelming disadvantages of homelessness, financial woes, and recovery from deep personal struggle. 

As you will come to see, a dis-advantage can be converted into an advantage by working as a group, sharing aptitudes, experience, and gifts while encountering the art-making process together.  We obtain new awareness, as well as bring timely, and much needed beauty to light.

Our philosophy...

embraces the art of art making as therapeutic in and of itself, as we continue to remain focused on the development of the professional artist. The method by which each member's creativity is nurtured is through mentoring by a staff person who shares like life experiences and expertise in any number of mediums. 

Finally, the result is:

A WHOLE PERSON...

able to rely on his/her own inner voice, buttressed by people who share common life experiences. They can label themselves as ARTISTS and become a viable asset for themselves; a reflection on their community: a person who chooses to experience and explore all that life has to offer.
