My travel watercolor set is cleaned and ready for its next adventure! This little guy has been with me on nearly every trip I've taken since I was 18! I've had to refill a few colors here and there, but this kit has been resilient. Thank you Winsor & Newton for giving me this fine travel buddy. On to the next adventure!


We are 3 days out and I get more and more excited with every hour! Today the students will be posting brief critical write ups on contemporary artists we'll see at the venice biennale. I, too, will spend some time familiarizing myself with some of these artists. I've glanced at some of them and look forward to digging deeper into their cultural and historical backgrounds! More posts to come soon!

    I am an Assistant Professor of Art at Lander University in Greenwood, SC.  I have travelled to Italy many times and I'm thrilled to be taking students and friends to Rome, Florence, and Venice this July 2013.  

    As an artist, I am always inspired by my travels, whether I'm going to Italy, Estonia, Montana, or just up the road to North Carolina or the South Carolina coast.  I believe that artwork should always be self-reflective.  So expanding one's worldview also serves to expand one's ability to respond to the world (and oneself) meaningfully through the creation of fine art.

    Good things are about to happen!  I can feel it!
