Exciting News!

My opening at Lyndsay McCandless Gallery in Jackson Hole, WY was fun. Thanks Lyndsay, Sam, and Natalie!

The drive from Lander to Jackson for the opening...yes this is in is Wyoming after all!

I found out in early June that I was one of three Wyoming artists to win a 2008 Wyoming Arts Council Fellowship Award. The award comes with a cash prize and a show in 2009.

The money that I won from the Fellowship will be put towards the construction of a free standing studio in my backyard. I have already started building and am thrilled to have more space to work. I borrowed the idea for the structure from a company out of California called modern sheds. Their structures look sleek and modern, mine however is looking more and more like a shed for horses. I guess it fits with my "Western" surroundings.

One last thing, I was invited to make a piece for a show at the Lark and Key Gallery in North Carolina. The show is titled "The Song cathcer Show" and is comprised of work inspired by music. I made a piece titled "Miles from Monterey" by West Indian Girl.
