We made it to 2018!
2017 was a pretty crazy year. When all was said and done, it was a good year for me and my family, and as I regroup and lay out some plans for 2018, I am feeling thankful. So let’s take a look at all that happened in the last twelve months:
My solo show Among the Weeds and Other Blossoming Things opened at Sawtooth School for Visual Art in Winston-Salem, NC in the spring.
Some of my work was selected to be shown in the Intersections + Transformation juried exhibition at the Womble Carlyle Gallery in Winston-Salem in the fall. I shared the space with a small group of wonderful artists whose work I admire and who I am lucky to call my friends.
At the end of the year, I was interviewed by Lisa O’Donnell from the Winston-Salem Journal. We talked about my background, work process, challenges, and what art means to me.
In the fall I launched my E-commerce site, making it easier for collectors to see my available work and to more seamlessly purchase it.
I served as Interim Director at the Diggs Gallery at Winston Salem State University during the fall semester.
At the beginning of the year, I published my first book, Little Watercolor Squares, a love story to life and painting inspired by the poetry of nature.
My family bought a house this summer – with a fabulous studio, a darkroom for Tim, and plenty of storage. YES!!!
And thanks to my collectors and friends who bought paintings, drawings, prints, and books, I was able to donate 5% of all my sales to Yadkin Riverkeeper, a local non-profit that “seeks to respect, protect and improve the Yadkin Pee Dee River Basin through education, advocacy and action.” THANK YOU!
I’m happy to share this with all of you. Thank you so much for reading and for your support. It means the world to me.
