It's hard to believe it has been a year since I finished my thesis show at Maryland Institute College of Art. It was an exhausting but exhilarating two years in Baltimore. While away from my Southern roots, I gained a family of artists and visionaries- people who love to create as much as I do- who never bore when talking about color theory or paint application. I am grateful to be a part of such an incredible group of artists. After two years at MICA, I learned to trust myself and my strange obsessions . . .

In the Fall, I traveled to Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont to complete a month long artist residency. I was delighted to receive a full fellowship to attend VSC upon graduation. It was refreshing and a much needed break from city life. I hiked, had long conversations with artists from around the world, and focused on slowing down. In the studio, I found myself making dozens of detailed drawings and watercolor studies for future paintings. My month in Vermont was exactly what I needed; I left with armfull of work and a head full of ideas.
