See my entry at Women's City Club from now until Oct. 9th in Grand Rapids. Voting for the finalists ends on Oct. 1st, this Saturday. You don't have to be IN FRONT OF my piece to vote for it (see a how-to here), but you DO have to be in GR. My voter ID is 62588. I really appreciate your support - you have no idea!
I'm so happy that I got to talk to Ypsi Real (part of the Ypsilanti Convention and Visitor's Bureau) about my experience as an artist in my town, Ypsilanti, Michigan. How nice was it for them to ask me?? It's quite something to be thought of as worthy to represent where you live! Also, getting my work in front of people is SO important as a fine artist. It's especially gratifying when part of one's work revolves around residents of where you live (i.e., the derby portraits)! Thank you to YR and Michael Moriarty for the opportunity!

Funny what you find when you google yourself. I feel like a bit of a heel for not finding this sooner, but, I'm glad I found it! The folks over at ArtNectar did a little post about my Drawing-A-Day project back in 2011 and it's awesome.
And thanks to them for taking the time to profile my project!
