Cherryhurst House. Sept 2016 - Feb 2017

Paintings, embroideries and wall drawings planned and created while in residence at Cherryhurst House, an artist residency program and exhibition space in Houston, TX.

After riding to Argentina for the third iteration of In Search of the Frightening and Beautiful, I spent 10 months building a new body of work at CH based on experiences from the journey.

November 2014.

With my Yamaha XT250 (aka "Guera") on the gallery floor, still shiny. This show featured slide projections of images taken during the first two years of ISFB from travels around the US and Mexico, with a soundtrack of road trip songs contributed by students.  Second editions of pieces I left in the Mexican landscape were also on view.
