And we're back! My apologies for anyone who may have been trying to access the site while it was down. As I mentioned on my social media feeds, the problem was that the site was built with Wix, using a format that was heavily dependent on Flash. Unfortunately, with Flash being phased out, it meant that my site became broken, and in desperate need of a conversion into HTML. As you can see, things look a little different than they did before; I've rebuilt things to the best of my abilities, and re-engineered a few things that were originally designed to work with the Flash-based editor. I appreciate everyone's patience as I've been working through this long and difficult process.
So what else has changed since my last post? Well, as I mentioned earlier, my father passed away a few years ago. Ever since then, I've been working toward finding stability in my new life. I still live in Bellingham, but I moved out of my apartment in January of last year, and into a new house that affords me much more space for a studio. I also convinced my mother to leave her house in Florida, where she was left alone by my father's passing, and she has moved here so that I can see her on a daily basis. After all the moving and renovations, I also found my way into two new shows-- the 2018-19 Winter Juried Exhibit at the Jansen Art Center in Lynden, WA, and the Allied Arts of Whatcom County's 2019 Membership Show here in Bellingham. The AAoWC's show just wrapped up, but you can still catch the Jansen show through March 1!
Keep an eye on this website now for new developments. It's been a long road to get here, but I'm finally back to turning my full focus toward my artwork. It's good to be back!
