3.26.10 BFA Show cards!
Hey everyone,

So my BFA Culminating Exhibition show cards came yesterday! I am really excited about them and cannot wait to send them out, I just need to get more stamps. Anyone that comes across this and would like one sent, just send me your address. You can find the info on my 'contact' page, or go to my facebook page. Things are coming to a head here in April. So many receptions and events that I can post to my blog! Check it out if you haven't and thanks for looking. :)

3.23.10 Critique
I posted an entry about our class critique, check out my 'blog' link for pictures! :)
3.18.10
How the time does fly! Sorry this is not as up-to-date with news...but please go to my Blog Link for more information on news and such events that are happening around the area! I have applied to residencies and classes but I am still waiting for news. About a month left until I install my BFA show - So that is also taking up a lot of my time. ! :)
Overcast.....1.22.10
Its always fun to find out about a good photo editing program AFTER you have already uploaded your photos - I have gone back to crop/resize some images so you can see them in better detail. This is regarding my Portfolio-Recent work 2009 (recent or current, I can't remember what it says), and Pate de Verre and I will redo the Pottery images.

I am in the crunch time to submit my fellowship application - and school starts Monday. This will be an exciting semester filled with clay, glass blowing, pate de verre, bronze casting and taking my favorite Art History teacher for my last semester at Chico!

And for most other people applying for shows, classes, workshops, etc....so many deadlines coming up! I need an assistant or something...
Update on images....1.13.10
Just wanted to inform, incase people read this, that I have updated my images/folders under my portfolio....take a look! :)
Floating...1.10.10
After spending a wonderful foggy morning working in a cold warehouse, meeting up with a friend for a drink, watching a highly disturbing gory movie and calculating the cost to apply for classes, residencies, etc, I feel motivated enough to finally update the news and let anyone know, who may come across this, that for more information on up-to-date happenings in the studio and life, can be found through my blog link on this website. I would like to use this news for updates relating to my art site and my blog is just an extended adventure. I would like to thank all the artists who have written me back and contacted me about my inquiries.

Long days...1.7.10
Well...the past few days have been intense but I finally have my website up and running, not to mention up-to-date on all of my work! It feels good to finally have my work on here and the funny thing is I actually have more pieces that could have been included but did not have documentation of them and they are no longer with me. So the lesson here: take pictures of your work as soon as it is finished, or at least some in-progress shots are good also. After this marathon of uploading, updating, rewriting-palooza, I must retire to rest for the night and be productive tomorrow. I need to start writing out my proposal for a fellowship I have been lucky enough to be nominated for, so that will take up another chunk of my energy. Thanks for taking a look and feel free to contact me with any questions!
