“Sunrise”, 2015, diptych – photography

My studio is outdoors and always open…

I’m ready to spend time in the sculpture garden with stone. Painting projects are in waiting as are photography. I can’t wait to feel tools in hands. Everything is green and lush and I’m in a super creative mode. I’m finally getting time in on my bike. I want to explore and enjoy nature. But wait, there’s other news…

“Art Specialist” – my new title. For the past two years, I’ve been teaching adult arts and crafts at Roxbury Tenants of Harvard in Boston, Mass. The Mission ParkĀ  is a 13 acre neighborhood with with a large resident base. This week, I begin as staff employee, no longer a contractor. I’m super excited to have this opportunity to continue to teach the class that I’ve developed, as well as a summer enrichment series, which include arts in the park. Once I settle into these new classes, the next phase will be artwork for the brand new Community Center. The gorgeous brand new center is a 28,000 square-foot fitness, health, and wellness facility for the Mission Park neighborhood. This will be a challenging and exciting time for me. I welcome all possibilities and look forward to working with everyone. Making art and smiles. Awesome.

*Another piece of good news: I’ve been awarded a 2015 Mission Hill Fenway Trust Grant (MHFT) for two art workshops, the first taking place on July 11, at Parker Hill Branch Library, Roxbury, Mass. I’ll post more on this soon.
