"I am thrilled to be one of 31 artists chosen by the Arts and Science Council to receive Regional Artist Project Grant funding in 2015. With this grant, I can fulfill my proposal to purchase a Richeson medium size printing press so that I can more easily create large-scale professional print folios."
"My first project will involve a series of colorful, modern botanical studies I’m calling “Heirloom Seeds.” I plan to weave stories and images of favorite plants into my compositions, combining myprintmaking with mixed media elements. I visualize two or three large pieces, along with watercolor sketches and small prints, for each plant. They will reference traditional botanical studies, but in a more contemporary, graphic presentation. I look forward to showing the new work at Ciel Gallery this fall."
