I am excited to share with you that I am featured in the September 2008 Issue of Southwest Art Magazine along with 20 other emerging artists under 31. Each year, the publication produces an emerging artist issue called "21 Under 31" to highlight young emerging artist with bright futures. I am honored and flattered to be included among the group. The artists chosen are from California, Utah, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Oregon, New Jersey and South Dakota.
The Senior Editor of the magazine, attended the opening reception for the East Boulder County Artists Studio Tour back in May of this year. I had a series of three nudes hanging at the show which caught her eye. After tracking me down as the artist of those pieces, she was surprised to see how young I was. Aparently, she was thinking about doing a feature in one of the magazines regular issues, but realized that I would be a better fit in their emerging artist issue!
The production department at the Southwest Art decided to publish one of my Malawian women paintings, "Collecting Water". The photo of the artist is by Kris Saints, talented photographer and sister-in-law.
