I was looking to create a new series of artworks to push myself past my current habits of production to reach a new level in my artistic practice. During a focused period of study, I hoped to overcome the struggles that comes with developing a new concept for a new series of images. As my artwork is inspired by nature, I was looking to research new plant forms, (specifically those that grow air roots in order to sustain themselves), experiment with new media to begin an abstracted mixed media, air root series, and gather resource images for further work at King’s Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.


In order to accomplish this goal, I attended an artist residency during the summer of 2014. While in residence for four weeks at Stonehouse Residency in Miramonte, CA, I hoped to re-energize my studio practice and complete four new works.
