Producer / Arts Enabler

Creating art and sharing it with the world takes broad perspective and patient resolve.

About me

Jeremy Crandell has been supporting artists in their work for two decades.

Enabling Art

The role of the producer is to help the artist realize their vision. Sometimes that vision is greater than the artist’s experience and a broader perspective, network and expertise is required to see the project through. This is what I term enabling art.


From the basics of understanding the requirements of physical labor to conceptual imaginings I bring a range of experience that enable new and often challenging projects to be realized.
