My talented friend Lizzy House who designs fabric and is an amazing printmaker tagged me which means I have to write down seven things most people don’t know about me…

1. I was voted most unique in my high school for the yearbook.
2. If I look a letters quickly I don’t know the difference between the letter b and a d… They look the same to me because I’m dyslexic.
3. My grandma who had severe Parkinson lived with my family for 5 years when I was a kid. I spent a lot of time with her and taking care of her. We were like siblings.
4. I love watching old black and white movies probably due to number 3. Also the men were gentlemen and the women were all so glamorous.
5. I use to have to go surfing for my parents to buy me school clothes.
6. I think it would be fun to be a racecar driver. I like driving fast and for long distances.
7. I once won a hula-hoop contest.

Oh and these are some great portraits done by one of my one favorite people Maddy Lucas. She’s a wonderful photographer and she let me be her model for one of her assignments. It was a little cold out that day.

BFA Monotypes in Progress

This semester is my first semester BFA and I’ve been working on my final project which will be shown in the schools art gallery sometime in June or July. This is a little of what I’m working on now and what my final show will look like. They are all Monotypes done on fabric that will then be mounted on wood panels that are 28”x20”.

The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho!

The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho, which is a great little museum in Idaho Falls, is having a show on printmaking from now until April 12Th. The whole show is to make people more aware of printmaking and all the different processes. The museum is also hosting some of the work done by my advanced Printmaking class. This is one of the pictures of our class from last Thursday which was opening night. My class was all so thankful for this opportunity to show and even sell our work. I loved just being there with other artist and people who appreciate art and being able to talk with them about printmaking and my work.

This was us a few days before the show when we were bringing our work to the museum and figuring out all the paperwork, labeling, and pricing. If you are ever want to check out the museum here is where you find all you need to know.

Oh and thanks for the pictures lizzy!
