I have not posted in a while, and I dare say that I have many good excuses! Here is a brief synopsis of my life events since my last post in August:
*graduated from Drury University with MA in Studio Art and Theory.
*married my wonderful husband Jason in my home state of Missouri, followed by a week in Cozumel (with the weather currently being what it is, Cozumel sounds exceptionally nice right now…).
*left active duty military.
*(almost) finished degree requirements for MA in Art Education from University of Nebraska at Kearney. Just waiting for that thesis to be graded!
*Became Artist in Residence at 39th Street Gallery.
*Joined local art alliance, where I have been displaying artwork locally, participating in critiques, and teaching art lessons at a local community center.
*started applying for terminal degree programs.
I think it’s safe to say that 2012 has been one of the most eventful years of my life! This past year has been jam packed with major life events and significant decisions. While some of these happenings are personal, many are professional or art oriented, and are aimed at helping myself to become the best professional artist I can be.
So that’s a recent summary of Susan in a nutshell. Other than some extra post-active duty quality time spent with Julia, it is been busy, busy, busy! (To be fair, Julia has been keeping me on my toes as well).
I have been working on a new body of work for the Artist in Residence program. It will consist of drawings, paintings, sculptures, at least 1 installation, and (if things go swimmingly well), a ceramic sculpture. I will post some pictures as soon as everything is complete.
