Summer at Cornish

2014 Summer Foundations collaborative installation

2014 Summer Foundations sketching at Seattle Art Museum

2013 Summer Installation Intensive in progress

I just wrapped up my second year of teaching Summer Foundations with Cable Griffith at Cornish College of the Arts. During the month of July, we met 4 days a week with 25 high school students from around the country working on everything from observational drawing to site-specific installation. This Monday I'm excited to begin my second year of teaching the Summer Programs Installation Intensive. I work one on one with students to develop and create a site-specific installation in the Cornish Main Gallery. Last year was a blast!

MacDowell Colony Recap

My studio at MacDowell Colony in Mar/Apr 2014

I had an incredibly inspiring and productive two months at MacDowell Colony in March and April. I met creative people from all over the world, enjoyed nightly artist presentations, and spent a lot of time walking around the woods in the dark with a headlamp. Visit The Portable MacDowell to see the installation I worked on.
