I've been invited to participate in an exciting art-making opportunity at the Lawrence Arts Center in Lawrence, KS! 

On Monday, Aug 29, I'll be starting a print-making residency at the John Talleur Print Studio.
This will be my first time (since I made a Fugazi T-shirt in 11th grade...25 years ago!) silkscreening- I'm nervous and excited.

The studio is creating a new program to publish limited edition artist prints, educate the public about printmaking, support artists, and raise funds for more printmaking programming at the Lawrence Arts Center. 

I am so thrilled to be the Print Shop's inaugural Ad Astra Print Edition Artist!
I'll work directly with a team of printmakers, led by Tonja Torgerson (LAC Printmaking Fellow), to publish a professional edition based on one of my new paintings.

If you're in the area, please join us on September 2nd from 5:00-7:30 pm (remarks at 6:00 pm) to celebrate with an Open House of the new John Talleur Printmaking Studio and launch of Ad Astra Editions first artist’s print. 

I'm keeping the artwork under wraps for now but you can follow along on my adventures via Instagram:
New prints coming SOON!
