Enid Swift Designs signs with Art of Possibility
Designer Enid Swift joins Art of Possibility
Studios for exclusive representation of her trend-forward work.
Swift's Army career was cut short by a rare neurological disorder
that has compromised her daily life. Her can-do personality directed
her back to the creative expression through art she enjoyed as
a child and she now focuses on the elements of design to bring
order and stability to an increasingly distracted world.
Making Art Matter by Making Art That Matters
Art of Possibility Studios won one of 6 awardee
spots in Micro to Millions, a business development incubator program
sponsored by Count
Me In for Women's Economic Independence.
Art of Possibility
Studios exclusively represents physically disabled artists via
license to manufacturers interested in developing products that
connect with consumers on a meaningful level and through an exclusive
luxury stationery line. Founded
by award-winning blind artist Ketra Oberlander, the agency's goal
is to encourage and inspire people in their daily lives.
Count Me In for
Women's Economic Independence created the Make Mine a Million
$ Business program to provide money, technology, mentoring, and
marketing help to women business owners in propelling their businesses
to the million-dollar mark. Only
3% of all women-owned businesses in the U.S. top a million in revenues.
Corporate sponsors include American Express, AIG, Cisco, FedEx,
QVC, JetBlue, Marriott and Dell.
"I'm absolutely thrilled," Oberlander
asserted, "Count Me In recognizes that I have a good idea
- a worthy idea - and the professional development Count Me In
offers will teach me the requisite skills to make a worthy idea
a working reality, helping me and other disabled artists earn a
living." Speaking from her Silicon Valley home studio,
Oberlander continues, "within a few miles of my garage are
the garages where other worthy ideas began, grew and changed the
world. By creating a for profit business vehicle for physically
disabled artists I'm introducing a way for consumers to express
a caring human connection, not charity, through their purchases."
