"The RAM (Racine Art Museum) Artist Fellowship Program aims to showcase the diversity and vitality of the Racine/Kenosha visual arts community by supporting the professional development of its artists. The goal is to distinguish the region as a place that values the arts, and enhance the area’s desirability as a place for artists to work and live. Concurrent solo exhibitions featuring each recipient's work will be presented at RAM's Wustum Museum of Fine Arts beginning August 23, 2019. A color brochure will accompany this fellowship show. By increasing critical attention and exposure for recipients, the program fosters their continued creative and professional development."

Papermaking with a Deckle Box
This summer my Carthage College intern, Elizabeth Willis, worked with me to make a deckle box, and then we produced large sheets of handmade cotton paper, with pigment and pulp painting. These sheets will be used to create work for my solo show at the Wustum Museum in 2019.
