Further Artistic Accomplishments

Special invitation to be a part of the 2005 Biennale Internazionale dell'Arte Contemporanea
Città di Firenze – Italia. This is an international show in Florence Italy held in the Fortezza de Basso.

Merit Fellowship Award 2011

Selected to participate in a six week Residency through The Alfred and Trafford Klots Program for Artists through the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). The Residency is hosted in the medieval village of Léhon Brittany. The competition was fierce and nationwide. Five participants were chosen for a superior portfolio, an outstanding record of exhibition, fellowships, awards, other artist residencies and notable teaching appointments.

The selection committee and program directors have chosen a total of five artists whose mix of media, approaches, styles, and focus will create a dynamic and collegial community.

My work proposal for the Residency “History Reflected in the Waters” resulted in 25 oil paintings on panel measuring 20"x20" featuring bridges, medieval buildings and historical trees reflected in the historic canals in the area

surrounding Léhon. France.
