In July 2017, I was featured as the MN Woman’s Press cover artist.
During the 2017/18 school year, I'm partnering with the East Side Arts Council to teach a project titled Rivers Connect Us, and in the spring of 2018, I’ll teach poetry inspired by the Mississippi Flyway through ArtStart, both programs made possible by grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board. I will also continue my teaching artist work through several elementary school partnerships, teaching mask-making, poetry, and bookmaking, and hope to be back teaching poetry at the May YA Conference at Bethel University in May.
In April 2018, I’m exhibiting my paintings and will teach a couple of workshops at Wisdom Ways in conjunction a conference exploring urban wilderness, nature in the city.
Four of my paintings appear in THE SOULFUL WOMEN CARDS released by Blue Angel Publishing in Australia in 2016. The deck is a collection of oracle cards designed as a portal into the sacred feminine, aimed at awakening a woman’s inner guidance.
Work in Progress: A recipient of a 2016 MSAB Artist Initiative grant, I’m creating a picture book titled PETUNIA’S WINTER, that juxtaposes the indoor gardens of the Como Park Conservatory with the stark Minnesota winter. In 2014, I was awarded a Next Step Fund grant by the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council and developed a wordless picture book still in progress, BELLA BLUE, a story depicting the wild imagination of a blue haired girl.
During the summer of 2016, five illustrations from this project were exhibited at MCAD in a show titled IN WORDS AND PICTURES: highlighting thirteen Minnesota women artists.
In 2014, I was commissioned to create a Commemorative Portraiture piece for the Theater Department of Marshfield University in Wisconsin. The final art piece, a diorama consisting of three layers of painted relief sculpture, is now on permanent display at the campus.
I was selected to create the Official 2013 Minnesota State Fair Commemorative Art! It is such a great honor to have the opportunity to create the poster for the largest fair in the country, and to be part of the rich community that surrounds it. Fine art giclee prints are available for purchase on request (18.5" x 16.5"). A write-up about the artwork appeared on MPR News, and you can also watch a video interview and unveiling ceremony.
Poetry News: I had four poems accepted for publication in issue #13 of The Ginosko Literary Journal, one of my poems was accepted for publication in Pirene's Fountain in 2013, and two of my tiny poems appeared in the inaugural issue of the Misty Mountain Review in April, 2012.
