My work has changed quite a bit since then, but it's interesting for me to look back at these mixed media collage paintings from 2002. They were created in the wake of 9/11 and reflect that sense of anxiety and destruction. For this body of work, I was awarded a 2002 Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA Grant, which was designed to help ease the transition from art student to professional artist. The grant was a tremendous tool that allowed me to set up a studio and buy supplies after graduation from UNC- Greensboro. The Joan Mitchell MFA Grant recipients were then invited to exhibit together at the CUE Foundation in NY. I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful experience all around.
