hello friends and family!
Phew- this has been a great year so far! I can't believe it's almost halfway through. A few things I have appreciated so far this year:
- Being selected for my first Artist in Residence at Glen Foerd!
- Installing my first collection in New York at RISE!
- Opening for Bruno Major @ Johnny Brenda's supported by lots of friends on & off stage!
- Spending two ~week long vacations traveling, camping and visiting family with my wonderful partner Ricky (and mastering boogie boarding)!
This year has already blown my mind with new experiences and I there's only more to come. I have been busy organizing and coordinating a number of upcoming events. It's kinda like I'm touring locally with how much I will be showing work, teaching workshops and performing in the coming months.. I am super excited to announce what is coming. There are new paintings to share, a new single to listen to, plant filled spaces to attend a workshop in and amazing art to experience! So grab your pen and your planner (or your finger and your Google calendars) and take down the dates you'd like to attend!
