Whew, has time flown by. The first semester of grad school has fully ended, and the second semester is starting in four more days. I cannot say how much I truly enjoyed and flourished during these past four months. Although I hadn't planned on applying to graduate school, I am happy the opportunity arose and extremely happy that I took the leap and applied. The people I have met and created bonds with are inspiring and motivating, and most will surely be connections that will last for many, many years to come.
I was planning on posting more in this journal, but my website took a back seat to exploring, creating, and settling into my style and concepts. Now that I have nestled myself into my creative home, I'll be able to confidently update and post new work on a much more consistent basis!
This coming semester is bringing with it an internship I am dying to start with a local studio that teaches classes on natural processes and material collecting - a place that I have been drooling over for the past few years! More to come on that once it is finalized. It is also starting with a cohesive making practice. Last semester was all about exploring and finding my voice, and this semester will be about finetuning my skills, exploring new processes, and continuing to deepen my 'family' of colors, materials, processes, and concepts.
Cheers to 2018 and a new semester!
