I am honored and very excited to have the opportunity to participate in a summer artist residency at Jentel Arts in Wyoming in July and August. I look forward to the time and space to complete a new body of works later this summer.
Exciting news to look out for later this fall: Airfield_Black Mirror is scheduled to be included in INPA 8, an international painting juried exhibition in print organized by Manifest Gallery. More info to come once the catalogue is available for purchase.

While in graduate school, I was part of a collective of graduate Painting and Printmaking students and faculty known as A4P (Air-Purifying Plant Proliferation Project). The goal of this collective was to research non-toxic and recyclable alternatives to the toxic chemicals used in the studio everyday. In addition, we collected and grew several varieties of hyper-accumulator plants (such as Spider and Pothos Plants) and distributed them around the art school as a way to clean the air from any air-borne fumes and metals. The group designed and printed zines, posters and shop information cards that listed potentially harmful chemicals with more non-toxic alternatives. Nationally and Internationally recognized artists Sean Caulfield, David Hamlow, and Dan Toberer exhibited works in the show.
The A4P group consisted of:
Jon Swindler, Chris Hocking, Eileen Wallace, Melissa Harshman, Ry McCullough, Saegan Moran, Megan Burchett, Katherine Miller, Kaleena Stasiak, Drema Montgomery, Michael Ross, Michael Benedetti, Tzvi Isaksonas, Heather Foster, Patrick Brien and others.
I'm rebuilding my website and wanted to revisit some pretty great things that happened to me in the fall of last year. I was humbled and blown away by the incredible insight into my work written by Gracie Pratt for Nashville Arts Magazine. The article coincided with a brief focus on my paintings at Cumberland Gallery during their rotating exhibition Summer Selections. Have a read here.
