I stumbled upon The Jealous Curator via some rabbit hole I had fallen into online about 3 years ago. I immediately emailed Danielle, also known as The Jealous Curator, and told her we needed to get together. I met her months later at Alt Summit and again expressed my fondness for her blog and all she was doing.
Fast forward a couple years, I am at an awesome Nod party in LA at The Fig House and finding myself utterly mesmerized by a photograph of a beautiful woman, as well as blown away by the overall art in the space – oh really, Danielle from The Jealous Curator curated this collection – of course she did. I went home to Chicago, but couldn’t get my mind off this photo and Danielle.
Needless to say, that visit to The Fig House was the catalyst for Danielle curating an amazing collection of Nod art over the past several seasons and for a lovely long distance friendship that I have really enjoyed. I have since met so many talented and lovely artists through Danielle, including that photographer, Stephanie Vovas, from The Fig House. And yes, I did get that mesmerizing photo of that beautiful woman and we did an amazing collaboration together, but you’ll have to listen to Art for Your Ear to hear about that. Oh and I can’t believe Danielle asked me to be on her podcast, totally geeking out! Take a listen and check out our Jealous Curator collection HERE.
