2015 is off to an incredible start - I'm very excited to announce that I have been awarded the Eben Demarest Trust Award
by The Pittsburgh Foundation
. This grant is given to support creative and intellectual independence and will be significantly helping me and my art practice this year. I'm proud to join the ranks of the past winners, such as Jackson Pollock and poet Robert Duncan and I am very thankful for Ryan Lammie and Jessica Bowser's
help during the application process. An even bigger thank you is owed to my patrons, family and audience - without your support and encouragement, I would have never had the courage to confidently take on the application.
