My attendance at the Art Fusion Event was motivated by a search for technical information from leaders in the art world. What I wasn’t prepared for, and was overwhelmed by, was the camaraderie, enthusiasm, generosity, high energy, uplifting and just pure FUN which made it an experience I look forward to enjoying for years to come.

Away from the smog in cities, our hearts are drawn to the mountains, where the only dust is earth, and the only barrier is the sky. Head to the mountains for the silence that roars from a wild heart.
