New Show: Qena Sint'isis at the Pratt Museum, 2017
In April & May 2017 the Pratt Museum in Homer, Alaska will be hosting my new solo show. The exhibit will be based on the Qena Sint'isis series and it will be the first time the entirety of the project's inner workings will be on display. Both new and current pieces will be shown, and a detailed look at the role of writing and symbols as visual art will be a part of the experience. Look for more dates and details as plans develop. For more information on the Pratt Museum please visit prattmuseum.org.
New Novel by Eowyn Ivey
On August 2nd, Eowyn Ivey's next novel "To The Bright Edge of The World" will be available for sale. Eowyn is a fellow Alaskan and a fantastic writer whose breakout novel "The Snow Child" captured the spirit of readers worldwide. With her debut she earned a Pulitzer Prize nomination and won International Author of the Year at the 2012 United Kingdom National Book Awards. I have had the great opportunity to share ideas with her and she has helped formed the inspiration that I use in my projects every day, I couldn't be more thrilled for her, and I am exceptionally honored to be mentioned in the acknowledgements of her new novel! Please support your local independent booksellers, and if you don't have a shop of choice it is available on Amazon, B&N, and a variety of literary outlets.
That is all I have to report on for now; I'm still plugging away at individual paintings and sketching out many more things to come.
Have a great summer!
