Walking Bridge

9 ft x 5 ft; acrylic, colored pencil, collage on vellum

New drawing

Not finished yet, have to do something about the shadow. I'm not sure how I feel about using a hook either--seems too predictable.

Revision of older piece

This is a revision of You Can't Rely on Anyone (in my opinion). I cut out the stool and the purple shape from the old drawing and collaged them onto a new, longer sheet of paper.

More installation shots...

From final reviews...

Installation Room shots from Final Reviews

Installed some of my work from the semester in a project room for my final review...

Thanks Mount Royal!

My fellow 2nd-year program mates have nominated me to represent MICA at Art Chicago's New Insight exhibition in the spring. I am still very surprised and so appreciative---I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!! Mount Royal is a great program....I still have to jump through some hoops in order to get in to the show but to be recognized by my peers is a great feeling.
