2016

Camp Venison through Venison Magazine. The magazine hosts an annual Art Camp where artists working in a variety of media can escape to nature while being focused on their individual practices. With workshops hosted by fellow art professionals, individualized feedback sessions, and opportunities to collaborate, Camp Venison is a space to explore and push the current constructs of a residents work.

 

2015

Redux Gallery and St. Vincent de Paul of Alameda County, Alameda/Oakland, CA. “The AIR program provides qualified artists working in a variety of media with the use of a studio and unlimited access to waste materials in our Alameda County warehouse facility.” From these sourced and forgotten materials,I pursued a four month residency which culminated in a large solo show. Part of my residency experience was also directed towards community involvement, including recycled-material, craft projects targeted at children and families at Children’s Fairyland.
