Front page of

Woohoo! I received some fun news in an email today. An image of my work was selected to be on the front page of the National Park Service website until sometime in March. This image is of three pieces that were made as a result of my amazing time at Grand Canyon National park in their Artist-in-residence program.

This exhibition is 1 year in the making, with over 70 individual pieces on display. The show consists of 8 vignettes, each of which are centered around a single photograph taken while I was in the canyon. I hope to upload images of the individual works in the weeks to come.

I am going back!!!!!!

One week from today I am heading out west- back to the Grand Canyon! WOO HOO!!!! It has been over a year since I left Arizona and I am so eager to get back. My experience there had such a profound effect on me and my work, I just can't wait to be flooded with the overwhelming magnificence of that place again. I will be spending 5 nights in the hole, just enough time to reconnect before returning home to put the finishing touches on a solo show of my Canyon inspired work in Fayetteville, NC.
