"As a young freelance artist, I have benefited from working with a multitude of artists from a variety of genres. This diverse experience encouraged me to create a platform to connect artists together, showcasing what's new and interesting in all forms related to contemporary dance. Creating this umbrella where I can showcase new and interesting work, simultaneously provides me a networked platform for my own work. This exhibit showcases handpicked works from around the world, and is designed to evolve and grow in conjunction with my career. I believe ARTery can connect artists in a way that enhances the creative process, producing rich work that pushes the art form forward, in hopes of reaching more people and inspiring the world one movement at a time."
