Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant

Hi! Been awhile since I posted and have great news. I was awarded a $15,000 art grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation to help with living expenses for a year and continuing my art career.

I haven't wasted anytime stirring things up. I've done two festival shows this summer and my art has been accepted into the World Fantasy Convention Art Show, Oct 28-31, Columbus OH.
I've also been applying for several huge art festivals in the southeast for next year.

Busy in the studio too. Through this grant I was able to get some much needed supplies. Right now framing some new pieces and already excited about the next collage I plan to make.
Any of you that have known me for awhile knows I was freezing in this old house last year! With a possibility of getting approved for some insulation through the state weatherization program and this grant I am optimistic about being warm enough to be creative all winter! The studio only has one electrical outlet and using a power strip, so getting that fixed..more light! I am so looking forward to making art and scheduling lots of shows!

Finally there's a time consuming project of updating my website. Will be able to accept credit cards and it just needs some tweaking.

Oh..stay tuned..

What originally got me started in my collage art was an altered book I made. I plan to feature it here soon.

Thanks for visiting!

Wow! Congratulations!

And thanks for stopping by my blog again. Glad you liked the magnet last year...I was wondering if I would stumble on your site again this time. So many sites! I'm wading through them but doubt I'll get to them all before it's done. So fun though!
