About

Who, What, & Why

Marie has had a life long love for the arts, in 2015 she founded A Journey In Art (AJIA) to share her passion with others.  She realized there was a disconnect between artists, business, and the community.  Marie refocused AJIA to help mentor artists and enlighten business' to the benefit or artist collaborations.

De Angelo, Rembrandt, and Vermeer were amazingly talented, but they wouldn’t be the famous artists they are today without the support and backing of their communities.  We owe it to our future generations to not just preserve the past of visual arts, but also ensuring a future for the next generation. Just like the people before us did to ensure the preservation of the arts, we need to preserve the creation and development of them.  That’s A Journey In Art’s mission, and our legacy

What

A Place for artist, business', and the community

In 2015  Marie Lof began sell her paintings and pottery, and gnomes at local business through our Maryland and online.  In 2017 she attended her first show and realized that she could help fellow artist gain the inspiration, knowledge, and goals needed to take their first step to achieving a meaningful career, doing something they love.

 

Marie accomplishes this by creating meaningful relationships with business and shedding enlightenment to the benefits of art collaboration, hosting shows, and offering sponsorships to help give artists a discounted rate and publicity to the business. 

Marie also creates meaningful relationships in the business community by helping business transition their brand across their platforms and market themselves more effectively.

Why

No artist shouldn't be  starving artist

The art world is competitive, with only a handful of resources for artist, and very little guidance.  Most of the resource available for starting artists are preforming artist, and the others require a lot of skills or finances, which isn't available to an artist starting off.  It is the hope of AJIA to help forming visual artist over come these challenges by providing them a space to learn and grow, without going broke in the process.

I realized it's not about my art, it's about growing the community, when I was repeatedly asked

How do I do this? How can I become a full time artist?
