Emulsion 2017

emulsion

I’m pleased to showcase a piece in Emulsion 2017, East City Art’s regional juried show. To quote the Pinkline Project: “An emulsion blends two seemingly incompatible substances to produce a third yet distinct substance. Oil + Egg Yolk = Mayonnaise | Air + Sugar = Meringue | Baltimore + Washington = Art Competition. In this spirit, East City Art’s EMULSION seeks to blend the culturally different yet geographically close regions of Washington and Baltimore by combining a wide array of art forms and mediums such as two-dimensional work, sculpture and performance pieces.” If that sounds up your alley, I hope to see you at the opening or artist talk:

Making the decision to go to grad school

Working in the studio this summer

This summer, I began something new. I’m attending the nearby Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. I enrolled in the Masters of Fine Art in Studio Art (MFAST ), a small, interdisciplinary MFA program. “Interdisciplinary” means I work alongside all types of visual artists – from sculptors to performance artists. This was important to me, because I’m exploring new mediums and no longer consider myself strictly a 2-d artist. The program is low-residency. It includes part-time study during the regular Fall and Spring semesters, and in the Summer, an intensive 6-week on-campus session (the “residency” part). I’ve just completed my first summer session, and I’ll go back to Baltimore the next three summers. Continue reading

A drawing a day

A drawing a day - Day 3

For 30 days, I’m going to produce a drawing a day. Some days this may be elaborate, some days simple. These could be collaborative or solo drawings, pen and ink, pencil, complex and shaded or simple doodles. The goal is to keep generating ideas without pressure…or work through a lack of ideas. I’ll post these to a Facebook album here.
