March 16, 2020 was the day that I decided 2 months in advance to quit my day job and fully commit to my work as an independent artist. I was accepted into two artist residencies, and was en route to sending in more residency applications. The world seemed like it was opening up for me, and I was elated to begin my journey again of sharing my creations with the world. The day I left my place of employment and home, California went into lockdown as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. My residencies were cancelled, and my plans to network, teach workshops, and show my work had disintegrated. Since this time I have been living on very low income without unemployment benefits. I have been tirelessly creating new work which includes what you can find on this website. I am currently in need of Patron support in order to continue creating and sharing. Any support is greatly appreciated.
