I was lucky enough to be awarded a comprehensive artist-in-residency by the Montana Historic Preservation Alliance in 2016.  As a celebration of Montana preservation and the National Parks’ 100-year anniversary, painting at five sites: Glacier Park, Virginia City, Traveler’s Rest State Park, the Wild and Scenic Missouri at Virgelle, and Butte.  Whereas each of five other artists were invited to interpret one of the sites listed, I felt very fortunate to able to visit all the locations!

This was a great opportunity for me to work as a sculptor set loose with paints.  I spent the time exploring ideas I’ve had percolating for years about form and color, bubbling out of a sculptor’s sense of the space we inhabit. And there’s no better place to let one’s eyes and imagination fly away into the landscape than Montana!
