In February 2018, I will participate in a four-week residency program at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont. This opportunity is a first for me, having never attended a residency it is exciting to get the time to dedicate fully, the research and studio time my artwork needs.  

During this four-week long residency is to expand my knowledge of the research that I have begun to do during my MFA at MICA of language. Given the time at the residency, I will continue to create large-scale drawings exploring the structure of language while also exploring the performative potential of the act of drawing. This is a lengthy process and the time to dedicate to my art will greatly help take the work and my career to the next level.  

I have reduced the cost of the residency through a work exchange program with the Vermont Studio Center. The money that is raised will go towards the remaining residency fees, and travel expenses.

Risks and challenges

While at the residency I will work on each individual reward from each donor and ship all once I am through with the residency in March 2018.
