Now that a new year has arrived, Winter has passed, and Spring has sprung, I thought it'd be appropriate to put out some news of what I've been up to.  

So far I received regional, national, and international awards for my paintings, the most recent of which has been the Greenpoint Gallery’s National Juried Art Competition in New York in 2015 as well as an Artist Residency Fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts where I currently reside. Before I began my fellowship in Provincetown, I had opened my studio in Savannah to the public in conjunction with numerous community art events. As luck or destiny would have it, just before I left town, Savannah's best podcast host, Orlando Montoya, interviewed me on WHCJ Radio.  The interview was a great opportunity for me to leave Savannah with a final impression before my departure.  
     
Eventually I packed up my things and left, first,  to California where I would spend 2 months to develop ideas for new work which I'd then develop further in Provincetown, MA. Among the many inspirational places I visited was the Getty Center in Los Angeles and a farming commune in Ojai where a dear friend and her family lives. I biked from place to place. The first bike, which I had bought used, was eventually stolen, and the second bike, again bought used, was spliced in half after I crashed down a hill in the mountains of Ojai. Fortunately, my DSLR camera, which I had been carrying around my neck, didn't get hurt.  Also I wasn't hurt, in fact, 2 hours after the crash I was swing dancing in Ventura with a party of older folks. 
          
After two months in California, my spirit was replenished;  I achieved plenty of creative ideas for paintings. I headed back to Savannah to pick up my things from storage and then to travel north for the Visual Arts Residency Fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center.  Upon completion, my time in this Residency will have lasted 7 months Fall-Spring.  Here, I began making paintings, eventually exhibiting them at the Provincetown Art Association & Museum as well as the Fine Arts Work Center’s Hudson D. Walker Gallery.

This residency has been the best thing that’s happened to me all year. My experience at the Fine Arts Work Center has rejuvenated a lifelong ambition of examining the human condition through a career in painting. On weekends I get to attend exhibition receptions  and visiting artist lectures, sharing ideas with art lovers who are like me yet different in significant and interesting ways.  I can say for sure, my health and wellbeing, and even my outlook on life has improved since being here.  

Going forward, my goal is to travel by following artist residency fellowships, art fairs, and exhibition opportunities, however the particular goal, which excites me the most, is to achieve a second year Visual Arts Fellowship, again at the Fine Arts work Center in Provincetown, Ma.  I have many other particular goals which will keep me nomadic and making art. However, eventually I plan on returning to Savannah to set up a studio. 

You can find plenty of information about me on this website, however, please contact me if you have any questions.
