Hey guys and gals,

I am posting from sunny muggy Meyeaaammmii! I will be calling this city home for a month as I am a resident artist at theFountainhead residency, an absolutely wonderful place, and opportunity run by two amazing and incredibly warm people Dan and Kathryn Mikesell. Pastartists include: Shepard Fairey, London Police, Aiko, Martha Cooper, Retna, Andrew Schoultz, Alex Lukas, just to name a few. I am staying in a 50’s style house, single story big open floor plan, with beautiful natural light with 3 other artists all here working through June. I will have a big garage that I will be calling studio, and when my clay arrives on Monday its on!!!! Here are a few photos, and I will try to update you with progress and activities over the month!
