This coming January I will participate in a 4-week residency at Escape to Create in Seaside Florida.  This is my first away residency and will be an exciting time for me to generate new concepts for my drawings and paintings away from the distractions of my home-based studio in Kansas City.

My goal is to use the time to explore new ideas and create a new series of drawings, as my drawings directly inform my painting practice. I plan to continue my focus of repetitive mark-making in my drawings while experimenting with new forms. I envision purchasing a used sewing machine to expand the application of sewn elements in my work allowing me to manipulate paper with textural shapes and line forms.

The money I raise on Kickstarter will go towards travel to/from the residency, purchase of a used sewing machine, shipping costs, documentation and materials.  Any extra money I raise will go towards expenses and supplies during the residency.

All backers receive special mention on my blog plus weekly updates on my experience with photos, studio shots via my blog, and a personal thank you note.

Thank you for reading and thank you for your support!
