I am beyond excited and honored to have been awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant in an amount which allows me financial freedom for the upcoming year. More importantly, it's the kick-in-the pants I needed to finally dispense with my restaurant job, for GOOD.
I’m so thrilled to have one less compartment in my life and to enable a full-time commitment to creative endeavors. Looking forward to kicking it off in May with a residency at the lovely Soaring Gardens artist retreat in rural PA.
It still doesn’t seem real. I encourage friends who qualify for this to apply- I certainly considered it a long shot. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to those who wrote me letters of recommendation, and to those who support me everyday: endless thanks to you!
