Who are we?

Ian and I have come to an exciting time in the evolution of our

dream of a not-for-profit artist community in Second Life,

The Dirty Grind Independent Artist Community. As we near

our second anniversary, we are working to expand and

improve upon the already groundbreaking personalized

support we offer artists involved in Second Life and their

management team..

Our goal…our passion has always been to provide a haven

for artists in which creativity and community. flourishes. We

are here for our artists and wish to extend our reach as a

service organization.

The members of The Dirty Grind Family put their heart, soul,

time and much more into their art. We give them our resources

and experience so they can better concentrate on creating.

Ian and I share a background in music and business.

My background includes innovation and leadership in the international,

nonprofit sector, communication, creative writing and art knowledge

I am the founder and former president of a multi-national 501(c)3 and

an independent mixed media artist. Ian brings his experience
