Ok, maybe not pee my pants, but I’m beyond excited!! I just received notice that I was chosen for an artist residency in Bali!!! This is a serious dream come true. I just keep thinking about this crazy artistic life journey.
I remember when I was terrified to show my work to anyone because it never felt good enough. I remember becoming a mother and thinking that my dreams of travel were over. I remember thinking that this sort of thing only happened to other people, not small town girls from Kansas. I’m glad I didn’t get derailed for too long!
In February I’ll be heading to Ubud, Bali for a 12 day artist residency. (I don’t apply for anything more than 2 weeks unless my son can come along). Unfortunately, due to school, my son will not be coming along on this residency.
I will be collaborating and working with the Balinese art community. I’m so excited to see what I can learn, and how it will transform my own work. I plan to soak up every ounce of inspiration and experience I can!
