I am thrilled to be a recipient of the 2020 Nancy Graves Grant for Visual Artists!
Established through a provision of the artist’s Last Will and Testament, the Foundation has supported the work and artistic development of individual artists since 2001. Initially nominated by artists and arts professionals from across the country, a second panel of jurors selected four grantees to receive unrestricted funds to work in a technique, medium or discipline that is different from the one for which they are primarily recognized.
I plan to use the grant to learn woodworking to expand my practice.
