From the Artist

I am so grateful to have received the Artist Trust GAP Grant. So many artists, myself included, put their hearts, their time, and their money into their work with no expectation of a return on this investment. The money from the GAP Grant will help me fund larger, more ambitious work that is close to my heart without financial stress. Thank you!
