I was honored to be selected as the March Artist-In-Residence for Big Cypress National Preserve in South Florida. Big Cypress Preserve shares a contiguous ecosystem with the Everglades so I was able to work and play in one of the largest areas of protected land in the North American lower 48. I took a boat ride out amongst the mangrove islands, hiked into chest deep swamps, and explored the nearby Miami art scene. At the end of the residency I had an Art Show / "Meet and Greet" at the Swamp Welcome Center. This is my fourth National Park Service Artist-In-Residency in three years.
