Yo! Sorry I havent posted much, communicated much,...I’ve definitely picked my nose much tho...just sayin. Anyway, besides the nose pickin, for those of you who know me well, Im a workaholic even when I ”take time off” like I had over the past year before moving to NM To be back with the fam. Since my Arrival to Taos Clay Studios August 1st, Ive taken 2 days off. One, to go to Santa Fe for a day to run errands plus visit the International Museum of Folk Art, and two, to start moving into my new place that I FINALLY got last week. Yes thats right, 2 months later. I signed up to be the Lead Resident Artist plus the Program Director here at Taos Clay Studios which but little did I know how much work needed to be done between new changes & updates to programs. I started with the Gallery & Supply Store, then the Studios & kiln yard, then biz restructuring with Department Coordinators. One month later I officially got settled into my studio alongside my studio mate & second resident artist, Maria Spiess, and brought back our various programs & classes. We’ve made a lot of progress. The studio environment, I’m told, feels tremendously better. Though its been stressful, especially the first month, it blows my mind that I have interns. Regardless of the adjustments & stress, its so far been a move that has welcomed things Ive been working towards & hoping for during the last 11 years of my career: interns, my own studio assistant, running a studio & gallery...it may not be my biz but I’ll admit ive thought about it being so And I run it like it is...like mom & dad always said, drive it like you stole It. Things happen for a reason. To inspire you to keep going. Stay tuned, the story’s not over yet. Cheers! Miss ALL of you and in case I havent told you this before, I dont just do what I do for me or because its my passion,...i especially dont do it for the $, I do it for my fam, my bros & sis’s, my nieces & cousins, and all of you who have made the most mind blowing choice to adopt me into your life in some way. Live by example. Inspire those around you...might as well make it good. I love you. Thank you!
Something about myself...
