T-minus 16 days until I begin my drive to Syracuse, NY where I will be working towards my MFA in Printmaking at Syracuse University. Obviously got some knots in my stomach, but I'm pretty excited for a change in scenery and also looking forward to hearing fresh feedback from a new and expanded network of artists. I'm going to be living with my studio-mate (www.caylalockwood.com) once I get there. Looking forward to this as I think it will be a mutually beneficial arrangement as we are both moving from smaller midwestern towns. Calya from Michigan and myself from Missouri (Pronounced "Misery"). Wish me luck on my journey and grant me strength during my 3 years of intense artistic development!
