Trudelle Galleries is on the brink of uncharted success. The Fine Art world was created to be something very specific many many years ago. What I do is something very different and something incredibly purposed. I had the pleasure of meeting Kelli Gillespie at a business breakfast here in San Diego two months ago. She was the guest speaker and it was powerful to see who she is and what she does in our society. She is an entertainment reporter for San Diego, she travels to world to talk with celebrities and get their story. Everyone has a story and a life they live underneath the day to day routine. Too often we see people in Hollywood only on the big screen and on the cover of People Magazine associated with the latest scandal. This causes us to forget that they are real people just like you and me. Well, Kelli Gillespie is a different kind of reporter. She focuses on real life, not the drama of the media. The connections she creates with the stars is phenomenal and the influence she has on our entertainment world is something to be commended. I was able to talk with her after the breakfast and thank her for speaking and sharing how she is impacting our world. She was so kind and we had a great talk. After talking for a short time about growing up in the same general area she asked what I do for work. I was able to share a small portion of my work with her and talk about Trudelle Galleries. This meeting was the beginning of something I believe I will look back on as our beginning.
Kelli and her team came to my house this last week to conduct an interview for her personal magazine, Risen magazine. They came and viewed my current artwork, asked questions, and were able to see and touch these pieces in person. It was so great to spend this time with them and get to share my story. I know that these years of working and pouring my passion into my artwork is going to pay off, and in my lifetime! I am excited about charting into new territories changing the face of the art world forever. Kelli will be featuring my story and Trudelle Galleries in her Fall issue of Risen Magazine.
