It was bittersweet packing up my studio at school this weekend. I'm happy that I get a summer break to reflect on everything I've learned, but shocked that the first year is over already. I am so grateful for all the great things that have happened this year, and I absolutely love the Academy and I'm proud to be part of the community.
I have an extreme summer ahead of me. I'm pleased to announce that I was selected as a recipient of the Terra Foundation Artist Residency in Giverny, France.. I fly out to Paris for a few days in August, and will spend 2 weeks in Giverny. I will blog about my experience when I return. But before that, I'm making a stop in Kansas to see old friends and family and then heading to Lima, Peru. Michael and I, plus 2 friends will be doing a five day hike in the mountains to Machu Piccu, followed by a cultural tour of Lake Titicaca. I will post pics when I get back at the end of June. Until then, here are some random photos/highlights from the past semester.
