Meet the Volunteer: Jan Toledo

Welcome to this new feature! We're excited to help readers get to know our volunteers better over the months to come. We can think of no better person to kick off the feature than our long-time volunteer Jan Toledo. If you frequent the Marketplace often or attend off-sites, you'll recognize Jan. With Dunia the past seven years, Jan is an accomplished local artist. In fact, you may have caught her piece in this year's Valentines for Aids at The Flying M. A full-time canvasser for Artfaire, Jan helps raise funds to bring art classes and supplies to low-income children. Jan's passion for art is clear - from her handcrafted clothing to her decoupaged shadowboxes, Jan is a seasoned arts advocate. Says Jan, "I hate the term 'starving artist.' Artists in this country shouldn't have to starve - in other countries, artists can just do their art. They're taken care of by their families. We need to learn that lesson here!"
