This is my first virtual residency and first residency during the pandemic. I used to travel a lot before the covid outbreak and I miss being able to participate in residencies in person and fully immerse myself in a new culture.
I’m originally from California, but moved back to Chicago this month. I was notified of my acceptance to this virtual residency during my layover in Denver.
Right now, I do not have studio space set up here in Chicago. I found a cheap scanner online that I’m picking up this week, and then I hope to dive into some of my collage work.
My main medium is analogue collage. I love cutting up paper and rearranging all the shapes.
For the first time in my life, I’ve started working on a website and it is agonizing. For years, my only online presence was a tumblr page, and then I eventually started to use Instagram as well. Making a website is stressful.
I’ll post more updates next week.
