Day 14 of #marchmeetthemaker is “how you learnt”. I attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where I studied Printmedia and Painting and Drawing. I got my BFA in 2009 and my MFA in 2011. I feel very lucky to have had the experience, as it was a great one!

A few months ago I painted and re-organized part of my studio space. This is my "Clean Space", where I do my painting. My work space is actually located in five parts of my home. I also have an office, where I do all of my digital work and business. A dark room / print room, where I do all my photography and printmaking work. I have a room dedicated as a warehouse, where I store all my finished work. And a wood shop a.k.a. garage, where we do the framing. One day I will build a dedicated structure that will house all aspects of the business, and it is my dream to offer an apprenticeship program for artists.

This is my first video! This painting was made with ink, salt, alum, and silver leaf. I love the process of making these pieces, so this is my attempt to share my love of the process. The song is Waltz in A minor by Chopin, performed by Aya Higuchi. It is a special song to me because Chopin is my favorite composer, and I have performed this song at several performances (back in the day). Thank you for viewing. Please note, this artwork has sold.
