"Working with a small studio made what I was creating even more powerful. I learned more about who I am and why I'm called to put my work out into the world. I owe my clarity to a small studio."

"a small studio brought clarity to our vision of helping refugees and immigrants relocating in the Akron area. The IWC had a vision, but it was fuzzy. It was like seeing something far off in the distance. You know it is there and you know you are heading in the right direction, but you are not quite sure what is actually there. a small studio’s process of asking questions, listening, and researching our local context brought clarity to the vision we were already pursuing."
