THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

I can't possibly put into words how grateful I am to all the participants in my recent Indiegogo campaign to help send me to my first out of state artist residency in western South Carolina. The initial goal to cover minimum anticipated costs was reached in 22 days, and you all just kept going! To date a total of $4064 has been raised! 

Over 70 contributors made donations, bought postcards, archival prints, and original works. For those of you who wish to remain anonymous, I thank you (and you know who you are) from the bottom of my heart. 

So, without further ado, here are the SUPERSTARS!!
