Wow, what a year.
Although I’ve had my ups and downs, overall I had a really great year. I feel like I’ve grown as a person and as an artist. I’ve accomplished a lot in my personal life, such as moving into an apartment on my own for the first time. And I’ve accomplished a lot in my business, like showing my work in several gallery shows, and winning the SMG/Pratt grant. I feel more confident in my skills and my artistic voice. I have more of a sense of what I want to explore in the coming months, and more courage to say no to opportunities that aren’t perfect.
I feel so grateful to all my friends and family who supported me this year. Thank you for coming out to my shows. Thank you for buying my work. Thank you for the opportunities to do what I love. Thank you for being there when I needed to vent. Thank you for all the advice, guidance, patience, and gifts.
I am so lucky that I get to do what I love every day. I try to never take that for granted.
Here are some highlights from what I’ve done this year
