B.F.A. Thesis Exhibition, "You Will Not Erase Me"
Lots has happened in the months since my last posting. The good news is, lots of good news!
First, I'm so excited to report that I’ve finished my B.F.A. complete with Thesis Exhibition, You Will Not Erase Me
, at the Center for Visual Art in May 2012.
Big love and heartfelt thanks to the Fine Art Department at MSCD -- specifically the printmaking, photography, art history, and thesis departments who helped me with this show: E.C. Cunningham (posthumously), Jennifer Ghormley, Jillain Mollenhauer,
Tomiko Jones, Jennifer Garner, and too many more to name. I so appreciate each and every one of you.
ALL THIS AND SO MUCH MORE is in the works right now ... it’s a very exciting time, and I can’t wait to share all that is unfolding. For now, keep in touch!

Holiday 2009 / Winter 2010 Update
Apologies, all, for the lag time since my last posting. I've got a lot going on, as we all seem to during the holidays, so I'll keep this brief, and promise to tell more soon.
I'm very pleased to announce that one of my lithographs, 'You Can Not Erase Me,' was chosen for the private collection of the Vicious Dog Press, along with a lineup of other artists representing the vanguard of MSCD print makers... awesome!
Also, a couple of my lithographs were chosen for the Metro Now show at the Emmanuel Gallery, which opened yesterday. The exhibition was juried by fantastic local artists, Jill Hadley Hooper and John Davenport, and features work by current Metro students. Emmanuel Gallery's exhibitions are always free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday from 10-6 and Saturday from 11-5.
(This show is really really good, one not to miss.)
