Concert Review: my collaboration with Sounds of Carolina Music Academy
Concert Review: my collaboration with Sounds of Carolina Music Academy
Jun 28, 2019
If you've been by the Anderson Arts Center, you might have heard beautiful music drifting up from the bottom level of the old brick building.  Sounds of Carolina Music Academy has been at the Anderson Arts Center for 4 years now and they are located across from the Bay3 Gallery where I show my work. I was excited to attend one of the studio's first concerts with my family.

I will showcase a selection of my latest work at the Anderson Area YMCA from June through August. For every piece that is purchased,  I am donating thirty percent of the sales back to the YMCA's annual campaign. The YMCA uses those funds toward scholarships for individuals and families to enroll in programs such as swim lessons, youth sports, summer camps and general memberships.

What's my job title? (And other existential questions.)

I generate new things out of nothing. I stare down chaos and create order. I curate, I destroy, I search for meaning and newness. I look for ways to fund my maniacal desire to paint larger - but I don't know why I want to paint bigger. I have magic and I look for new ways to get paid for my magic. I ask bigger questions than I can figure out on my own.

My Experience in Artists U: a program to help artists build a sustainable life
May 21, 2019
Since I have moved to Anderson, I am continually grateful for the opportunities and support that I’ve received from the Anderson community and the Arts Center. Last month Anderson Arts Center hosted Artists U, a two-day workshop lead by Andrew Simonet.  The workshop was funded by a grant from the South Carolina Arts Commission, and was free to all the artists who registered.

I’ve been drawing since before I could write.  My mom gave me paints in my Easter basket and art supplies under our Christmas tree. I’ve been taking community art classes since middle school, and I have been lucky enough to have support and encouragement from instructors, teachers, professors, and now my wonderful friends and family.

The Calvary Arts Festival will be on March 23, 2019 from noon to 4pm.

I flew to Saint Louis to meet an artist who has influenced and informed my work for years. I finally found the opportunity to study with Carol Carter, a master watercolor artist who has forged big innovations in color usage and paint application.
