I have recently been accepted to the Arteles Creative Residency Program in Haukijärvi, Finland.  The residency would take place for the month of June, 2014.  An international mix of visual and performing artists will be in residence there. I have been awarded a 50% scholarship, but need to raise the other half of the expense plus airfare.  $2500 would cover travel, supplies, and room/board residency expenses.

As many of my friends and family know, my paintings emerge from landscape and are specific to places that I live and travel.  The Arteles Residency is surrounded by nature, and my plan to create paintings and drawings inspired by the particular land and light of Haukijarvi.  June will be a special month there, because of the long hours of daylight.  I am excited to explore the environment and record the shapes and colors in my work. 

In May 2013, I completed a month long artist residency at the Vermont Studio Center, where I was awarded a full fellowship.  This month was invaluable to me- my work took on an amzing new direction, and I talk enough about the deep and lasting impact it has had on my creative life!  I know that atteneding Arteles will have a similar impact, and I am hoping to make this happen.
