2015 Recap

I try and set goals for myself every year in different areas of my life — within my teaching profession, with my personal artwork, business, and personal goals. These goals help me to find some balance throughout the year. I started off 2015 with my first solo exhibition. It was a huge goal (for many years!) and that alone would’ve made 2015 very successful as a working artist. I set smaller goal to have my work exhibited but didn’t put a number with that goal… good thing.. I could’ve never imaged how OFTEN my work would be on display in one year.

I couldn’t ask for much more. Having my work exhibited multiple times this last year has has given me the closure with this body of work, and I’m looking forward to starting NEW work sooooooon. Hopefully this Summer there will be NEW images for you to see!

Here’s a quick recap of WHERE my work ended up in 2015. I can very grateful for all the jurors, collectors, and gallery directors that gave me the opportunity to show in their space!!

And…. if having work all over town (and even on the WEST COAST) wasn’t good enough. I also met THE. Sally Mann. She wished me happy birthday and told me to stay in the darkroom. So, my goal is 2016 is to stay in the darkroom… I can’t argue with that!!!
