I am really excited to be a part of Exchange Rates opening tonight in Brooklyn, New York!
"Conceived and produced by arts organizations helmed by artists and curators in Bushwick, Brooklyn and London, England, Exchange Rates—known also in this inaugural iteration as The Bushwick Expo—is an international exposition of artworks and curatorial programs in which host spaces in one art community open their doors and share their walls with kindred spaces on visit from elsewhere."
I wish so much that i could be there for the opening but I am sure it will be a great time for all that are in attendance! if you want to know more about the show here is a link.
I am honored to have been nominated for the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation of Art Award. To celebrate the seventh year of the award they organized a show of all the nominated artists.

If you have a chance please stop by and check out all the great work! There was also an interview you can read here.
I thought this might be a good first Blog Post. It is a video shot by Derek Kline of my residency at the Museum of Glass in February. It kind of explains the most recent body of work i made and a little bit of the process that goes into making the work.
This residency was a really incredible opportunity for me as an artist to realize a lot of my ideas. It was also really interesting to be on the other side of the residency- I am usually part of the team supporting the Visiting Artist. Not only was this a great experience in making my work but it also gave me a little bit of insight as what each visiting artist is going through as far as the planning, nerves, and excitement leading up to a residency.
I could not have been happier with the work I made- I am honored to work with the crew i do everyday and they really came through for me to make this week run as smooth as possible.
