Grace says part of what has made her small business survive and thrive is Denver’s robust and collaborative arts community.

“I have spent some time in other art scenes around the country and around the world and this is one of the most special ones because of that collaborative nature.”

An art scene she feels is worth supporting.

“Buy more art, go to First Friday, see the art scene and allow the journey to unfold.”
