She works out of her home as a freelance artist and photographer and is currently subbing within local school districts while still actively pursuing a career as an art teacher.

She constantly pushes her work and experimentation.

“When I work with students, I let them see things in their work they have never even thought about before,” she said. “It’s about the journey, not the destination.”

Also featured will be vocal artist Brianna Jessmore.

Jessmore is a senior at Mexico High School, where she participates in chorus, band and the drama club presentations.

She has been accepted into prestigious NYSSMA Conference All-State Woman’s Chorus.

Her passions are music and the performing arts which she plans to pursue in college.

Jessmore said she is excited about all the opportunities and experiences she will have as well as the memories she will create.

The fundraiser helps support the upkeep of Casey’s Cottage.

Adults are $7 with Friends of Mexico Point Park members, seniors, and students $5.
