CATHY JACOBS – Artist
Specializing in woven textile wall art

DABI/Andrea: We can read up on your wonderful, art path on your website, and your Embrace Creatives’ account so let’s talk about what we CAN’T see… What’s the best part of the next thing you’re doing?

CATHY: The best part of next thing I am doing is that it will be a surprise to me. I love surprises.

Right now, my attention is very inwardly focused where a lot is happening in the studio.

This is a time that it may look like or feel like nothing important is happening. I know from experience that an explosive time is coming soon. Read More »

I know you’re busy so below I outline a fairly simple plan to help you publish strategic content that your visitors will engage with.

Firstly, don’t just write. You need to set goals then create article to help you reach them. Do you want to reach more people?
