My background in fine art and publishing honed product development, copywriting, marketing and fundraising skills in corporate and non-profit environments.
As an undergraduate, I researched for copywriters at The Franklin Mint Corporation and later became an Acquisitions Editor with Pearson/Prentice-Hall, where product development skills evolved.
These roles, with graduate training in Fine Art, led to a managerial fundraising job at Philadelphia Museum of Art, serving corporations that collected art to benefit The Museum.
After leaving PMA in 2000, I started Leslie Ehrin Fine art to publish and promote fine art and travel writing.
In 2009,I co-founded Mellowood Publishing, wrote and published a children's book, with Illustrator Lois Ehrin. Through art and book publishing, copywriting skills were refined, and products were promoted via cause marketing events. This opened the door to my expanded niche as a Travel Writer, Art Blogger and Online Marketing Consultant.
