Gen Blais, hat wearer


I’ve breathed art as long as I can remember. At seven years old, I pleaded with my mother to hang a 6’ print of Picasso’s Guernica over the couch. An unlikely choice for a child. 

As we’re a small and humble start-up, I wear many hats at Mercartto. Primarily, I’m the resident storyteller; crafting communications from photographs to blogs to social media posts. I also moonlight as a working artist.
