Mike Franco, owner and creator of Wizard Sleeve Toys and WST Worldwide, operates a modest designer toy store online and dreams of one day dabbling with an online art gallery that will help expose flourishing and up-and-coming artists. Mike’s primary objectives are built on strong artist collaborations and now he is looking to expand his concepts and ideas into the art world. To him, there is nothing better than talented artists coming together for a common goal and helping their overall community. This time around, Mike’s focus is on gathering a group of strong women artists, with varying artistic backgrounds and talents, to form a travelling art exhibition.
