Finance & Operations Manager


Gems likes rocks and minerals so much they chose to go by the nickname Gems. Artist Trust’s mission is especially meaningful to them, as they are also a working artist. They’ve dabbled in many mediums, including stone carving and performance art, but is mostly known in Seattle as a member of the band Nail Polish.

In the office, they enjoy working backstage to ensure that the organization is fully equipped and operational. They manage daily bookkeeping, IT support for staff, and act as a liaison to the Board of Trustees. Their favorite task is printing grant checks for artists.
