This is one of the last few things I had to do before I graduate and receive my BFA at Kendall College of Art and Design! What a ride! Now I just need to finish a final painting, get it documented to share, prep my best artwork for the senior show, hand this in, hang my senior show "Phantom Witch Hunt", get ready for portfolio reviews, deal with a small business card dilemma, and finish strong! Then I can participate in the graduation ceremony without any monkeys on my back.

It's done in oil and is 15 3/4 by 20 inches.
I love this character. I feel like she has a lot of weight to her story. Maybe someday I'll do a short story to go along with her. She's a witch that is based in the forest (cliche, BUT/) and she uses wombs to float on and snatch up dying animals for her own purposes.

"Art Downtown | April 13 2012 | SiTE:LAB | 109 ½ S. Division Ave
On Friday, April 13, Site:Lab will be occupying the old Harris Furniture Building located at 109 ½ S. Division for an innovative, one-night-only project. Site:Lab curator Paul Amenta is teaming up with playwright and GVSU professor Austin Bunn to transform the building into the setting for a unique performance piece being written by Bunn. Local artists and students are currently signing up to create the rooms, props and costumes required by Bunn’s script, and on April 13, actors and performers will enact a narrative inspired by the building’s history throughout the space. Unlike a traditional play, viewers will be able to experience the performance at their own pace and in their own order, or through random encounters. The event is scheduled to coincide with ArtDowntown, and will be open to the public free of charge from 6 to 11 p.m.
Site-specific projects from students, faculty and alumni representing 5 Michigan colleges/universities, as well as a number of local artists.
· Aquinas College
· Grand Rapids Community College
· Grand Valley State University
· Hope College
· Kendall College of Art and Design
SiTE:LAB creates temporary site-specific art projects aimed at facilitating dynamic collaborations between the art, design, education, business and cultural communities of Grand Rapids.
This event has been made possible through the generosity of the Arts Council of Greater Grand Rapids and the Downtown Alliance."
I'm always really excited to see my Mantle Piece hanging or in this case apart of a bed head board! Come see it if you can!
