I wanted to start a company that felt very personal. A company where I could not only showcase my creativity, but the creativity of people whose work personally affected me. At The 4208 Group we focus on shining a light on women artists of color. Our goal is to cultivate the growth and development of these artists. We also work with organizations that showcase and/or empower women artists of color.
