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.
