A few weeks ago I was invited by North Valley Art League to run their June program and present my life as an artist from childhood to now. I had a lot of fun going into the vault of older work from college and seeing my progression. The program was 1 hour and I got paid a pretty great stipend for my time! The group enjoyed it very much and told me I was new and refreshing to have around & that they love my young energy. The president of the league took me aside afterward and asked me to start teaching classes at their gallery! I've been working on getting proposals together for that, I think I've narrowed it down to drawing, encaustics and a very affordable kids program for this first round of classes.
It's been a big few weeks here in CA!
