big news!

I wanted to wait to write about my big news until I had pictures to go along with the story,
but it doesn't look like that is going to happen until this weeked.

So, here it is~
I am the new artist in residence at Zootown Arts Community Center {ZACC}!
It is a terrific nonprofit arts community center that is located just a few blocks away from my house.
I will have an "official" studio & act as gallery manager
along with the other artist in residence~ Chris Koelling.

So, it is official~
I will graduate with my master's in economics in May,
and enter the world, not as an economist, but as a full-time artist & freelance illustrator.

I am so excited to become further imbedded in my community & my neighborhood!
I will make sure to take a few pictures of the building and my studio space this weekend.

Also, I will be restucturing my blog a little bit~
The first change will be a weekly post I've named
{gratitude + thursday}
I will be featuring an artist whose work I am grateful for,
along with things that I have felt blessed with in the week prior.
Look for it every Thursday!

WONDERFUL!

This is absolutely amazing, I can't wait to see the pictures...a full time artist!

Also, looking forward to learning about the artists you love. Should be a nice addition.
