Upon graduating from VCU in 2011 life has continued to be quite exciting. I’ve pursued my own career as an artist, that career has carried me across the globe and to exhibitions around the country. I’m honored to have been the awarded the Museum of Russian Art’s International Art Festival’s top prize for Graphics, and to exhibit my work in two solo shows at Ghostprint Gallery in Richmond, Va and in the Museum of Russian Art in Jersey City, NJ. This coming New Year I will be the first artist in residence for the Holland America Line in 15 years. I will be creating a new body of work onboard the MS Amsterdam while the ship circumnavigates the globe over the course of 114 days, visiting over 20 countries. Thank you VCU for the marvelous start.
