Good News!

First, I am super honored to be among the very talented creatives that have been awarded a 2019 Artist Trust Fellowship. This couldn't have come at a better time. If you're not yet familiar with Artist Trust, I strongly encourage you to check it out and get involved with this amazing arts organization.

This is the closest I will ever get to winning an Emmy Award
Recently, an incredible team from KCTS 9 was honored with an Emmy® for Borders & Heritage: Los Artistas at the 2019 NATAS PNW Regional Emmy® Awards. The program – a special digital and broadcast presentation – featured the stories of four Latino artists living in the Pacific Northwest for whom art is not only a form of social expression but also a proclamation of heritage. I am thrilled to have been a part of this program.

4Culture Grant
With the support and generosity of 25 friends and patrons, I was able to once again stay in an amazing house in Palm Desert to recharge, be inspired and create for a month. I went with the intention of continuing and further developing Desert Drawings I created last year, this time with the specific goal of making paintings that would eventually become sculptures. While there I created 10 acrylic paintings on 30" x 22.5" Arches 300lb hot-pressed watercolor paper that you can see HERE. I am happy to announce that I will be receiving an Individual Artist Grant from 4Culture so a select few of those paintings will come to life in 3D. Stay tuned for a presentation of the paintings and sculptures towards the end of 2019.
