Petrified Forest National Park Artist-In-Residency

I was a summer 2016 Artist-In-Residence at Petrified National Forest Park in Arizona.  I lived in a Park historic cabin for three weeks across from the legendary Painted Desert Inn.  During my residency I made five original animal masks and worked with models to photograph my work in the unique and otherworldly landscape.  I also displayed my work at the Holbrook Train Depot for their monthly art series, showed work at the annual Route 66 festival, and held a two day demonstration at the lovely La Posada Hotel in Winslow.
