2019 was a big year for me and as we wrap things up and look forward to 2020, I want to thank you for your support. I took the big leap of going full-time with my art career at the start of 2019, and I survived! Well I did more than survive. I did great and I’m learning a lot about running my own business. Bring on 2020!
To anyone who bought artwork, supported a project, liked and followed me on social media – Thank you so much.
Here are some of the things that your support made possible this year:
I successfully made Paper Mountain and Sky Project and exhibited them at Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art in the spring. Making this large scale installation and video project took almost 2 years of planning and required fundraising to make possible.
I gave a talk during the exhibition, and you can watch it here.
I had my first solo museum show “I must love you very much” at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) in the fall.
Cory Huff from the Abundant Artist interviewed me and we talked about busting the starving artist myth and my trajectory from graduate school to becoming a parent to being a professional artist. You can read it here.
88.5 WFDD Public Radio invited me to participate in an interview as part of its Radio Camp. You can listen to it here.
I donated 1% of 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.”
For those of you who own my artwork, you might like to know that prices of my original artwork are increasing February 1st, 2020.
Thank you so much for your continued support along my journey.
