We are sisters who grew up in the 1970s in an artistic family and have worked together all our lives on creative endeavors. Maureen followed a path into business, technology and arts education, and Shannon found a career in nonprofit managment and creative writing. After thirty years of jobs and marriages and children--and motivated by the conviction that the world needs artists now more than ever--we moved to St. Paul de Vence, a medieval village on the cote d'Azur, to pursue our shared passion for bringing the arts and culture to a wider audience.
As a writer invited by the Republic to live in France and work in the arts, Shannon is the team's cultural liaison to artists, government entities and cultural organizations. Maureen's superpowers in project management, arts administration and problem solving make her the strategic brains of the operation.
We live and work in a 19th century stone row house at the top of the village, surrounded by public art, tile roofs and the songs of swallows. We love what we do--it's easy to be happy in this place!--and are eager to help you or your organization realize your creative potential.
