The news is finally out, and I am happy to share it here! I was granted a Canada Council for the Arts International Residency Program for the Visual Arts at The Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. For four months in the Fall of 2012 I’ll be here making art and researching. I’m wildly excited and proud and still don’t entirely believe it. With a very busy spring and summer under my belt, I hope to get into the studio regularly from now until I head to Spain for my residency at Can Serrat.
The photo was taken when I travelled to Paris in 2005 with my family (I’m not sure which of us took the photos!). I find it particularly poignant as I imagine all of the directions my career and life could head after this kind of experience.
