This weekend I will be an artist-in-residence at Allegheny College in Meadville. Two talks, four classes, one workshop makes for a productive experience for all of us.
My visit is part of The Year of Sustainable Communities at Allegheny College, a series of activities, workshops and events aimed at inspiring the campus and community to examine what provides a good quality of life for its citizens and enables them to be resilient in the face of challenges. For our quilting inspirations we will look to the Quilters of Gees Bends.
To be a full time professional artist requires many different income streams. Traveling, exhibitions, commissions, consignments, lectures, teaching, and writing all work hand-in-hand. If it sounds like a juggling, it is!
It’s exciting, it’s creative, it’s lots and lots of hours and it’s what I do best.
