We haven't had one of these in awhile! We're so happy that we're getting back into the swing of things! Thank you all for being patient with us as we navigate this virus with you.
This Artist of the Month is more serious than the ones before it. We just want to make sure to do this artist the justice she deserves.
So, without further ado, please welcome Ginger as November's Artist of the Month!
A Little More About Ginger
You may have met Ginger and didn't even know it! She is one of the few people that we trust to stand behind the counter and spend time with you guys if Kat and Heather can't be there. She's practically our Store Mom (or at least, that's how we think of her!)
That's why it hit us hard when we found out she was diagnosed with Acute myeloid Leukemia just a little bit ago.
Acute myeloid Leukemia is a specific cancer that starts in the bone marrow. Basically, this cancer is going after her white and red blood cells before or as they are being created.
She said that she was ok with sharing about her diagnosis with all of you, so we decided to try to honor her fighting spirit by making her Artist of the Month for November. Continue on to read about this amazing lady and what we're doing at Impulsive to help her and her family out.
We are super hopeful that she can beat this and come out the other side happy and healthy! She has already gotten some really positive news towards getting through this. We, like her family, don't want her to have to worry about covering the cost once she gets out of the hospital. We want her to focus on feeling 100% better!
The Interview with Ginger
A little backstory before we get into the interview. We did this over text message so that Ginger could answer whenever she wanted to and not feel like she was put on the spot. She had told me that the last few days had been hard for her, so that's why her answers are on the shorter side. I think that she's amazing for wanting to even do this while feeling so bad! She is always thinking about the people around her. So here's to getting to know a little more about such a caring and wonderful person ❤
H: What was the "key moment" for you that lead to you getting started in your medium?
H: If you could work in any other area of art (besides your own), what would it be and why?
