From the Artist

It’s an incredible honor to be awarded a fellowship from the Artist Trust and I am truly grateful for this generous support. The award not only recognizes and validates the work I have already created, but quite literally invests in my vision and future as an artist. The Artist Trust Fellowship acknowledges that artists need time, space, and funding to make their artistic work a reality – thank you for this incredible gift.
