My last issue as editor of R•Home

rhome mag_marchapril2014

The March/April issue of R•Home mag was my last issue as editor, and coincidentally it was an “artful” issue. I left my job at Richmond mag mid-January to take on a new job opportunity as communications manager with the Visual Arts Center of Richmond. So, it goes to show that as I was wrapping up my last issue of R•Home, my mind was already embracing a new artistic perspective.

Here’s the line-up of R•Home content:

It has bee a blessing to work on R•Home with so many talented writers, editors, stylists, photographers, illustrators, and art directors in the past year. As I turn to a new chapter in my life, I’m so happy I have these ones to flip through and look back on. Thank you, all! cheers, marissa
