For the first time in eight years, I am no longer an Artist in Residence at the Greenbelt Community Center. It is a sad sight, empty down to the concrete floors. I met so many wonderful people in this studio. Back in the early days, my daughter took afternoon naps in the studio while I worked. I will miss being a part of the Greenbelt Community in this way. I hope to find a creative home in Fort Collins, Colorado that fits my needs so well.

I am proud to have been named one of Greenbelt Elementary School's Volunteers of the Year. Featured in this photo are me, GES Principal Kimberly Seidel, Mary Ann Baker, and Pamela Bernier.
I feel that we are all responsible as a society to make our public schools great. For the last 11 years in Maryland I have worked as a Maryland State Arts Council Artist in Residence. During that time I had many residencies in Howard, Montgomery, and Anne Arundel Counties. This year I decided to volunteer at Greenbelt Elementary as if I was getting paid (maybe a bit more) Truly trying to make my neighborhood school better through my involvement. I am proud to have this honor before I leave Greenbelt for Colorado. I hope the kids enjoyed making art with me as much as I enjoyed teaching them.
