Matthew Reilly, “The Carpenter Artist” graduated from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and has been designing, painting, building and creating ever since. He is an expert in these type of tasks.
One year, Matthew had a dream to have an “Inner-Action” gallery art show.
But Matthew creates art. Remember?
So, with his help, I took on the task of co-planning and marketing his event. I sincerely wanted his dream to come true and knew exactly who I could connect with to get Matthew the exposure that he needed before the event. Matthew ended up on the front cover of an Ozaukee Press Good Living section. As you can see, the event was well attended due to the newspaper and social media attention the event received.
Since then, I have helped promote Matthew’s skills to the right people and have helped him land new contracting and commission work. I have gotten him into galleries and have managed his social media accounts. I have both captured and documented a lot of Matthew’s art journey on film and camera.
I do not believe that we are meant to do everything alone. We are destined to connect with other human beings and help each other in areas of weakness.
Connection makes things happen!
