Next Stop… Iceland

Well I’ve returned to my home base of Kansas City, but -as seems to be the case in my life right now- not for much longer…

My next endeavor is a two month artist residency at the Skaftfell Center for Visual Arts in Seydisfjorður, Iceland. I’ll be in residence at Skaftfell this coming December and January. If you’re unfamiliar with what an artist residency is or if your asking yourself why would anyone want to go to Iceland…let alone in the winter? Feel free to visit the Kickstarter page I’ve started for more information.

Some dipped Japanese postcards. Each piece will be unique and have 1-2 colors.

Some recycled container lamps.
