It is almost 2 AM when I am writing this. The snow is piled up outside. My string lights are glowing and my peach lemon tea is steaming. Me being a night owl, I'm unable to sleep and need to find something to do so I will eventually become tired. Something that doesn't involve a lot of mess or noise is updating this site, scouring art sites for open calls, and brainstorming upcoming ideas. Here is some of the things I have been up to.
My winter break was short and very hectic. During the two and a half weeks: one of my closest relatives passed away, I was sick on Christmas (and the rest of that week) with a respiratory infection, applied to art exhibitions, prepped a book cover submission, planned my senior thesis exhibition, worked on applying to graduate school, and somehow found time to work. On the positive side of this most of the preparation aspects and applications have been completed. Being snowed in has it's advantages! : )
My senior exhibition opens February 2nd 5-7 pm and runs through February 18 at the McGrath Gallery at Bellarmine Univeristy. My work is being shown with two other talented painting majors: Allie Jensen and Dakotah King (their names have hyperlinks to their Facebook art pages). I have dispersed show cards and am planning opening reception treats.
As the semester begins, I not only have to prepare for classes, senior show, graduation, but also begin working on work for my residency. For those unaware, I am one of the Arthur N. BecVar Artist in Residence at Bellarmine University for 2017-2018. This program was established to bridge the gap between students working in the arts whether that be english, theatre, music, visual art, etc. and the health science department.

Well, I think I rambled enough for the night and a while. I will post another update in the near future! Peace <3
(I was going to find a "Ramble On" gif in an attempt to be tongue in cheek but I like this better)
