After a night spent in Roanoke, and getting lost in the mountains of Tennessee for more than an hour...I made it! I have a work study position at Arrowmont for the next six weeks! I will be working in the campus bookstore in exchange for taking workshops. So far I have set up my twin bed and walked around campus...and tomorrow I start work! It is super beautiful here, I can't wait to explore. Pictures soon!!

More prints!! This one is a 2-plate etching, also based off of water. When I took this class, I was kind of stumped on what to make my etchings look like. A lot of kids in the class were doing super cool illustrations of monsters and funny things..and I am no illustrator, so I wasn't sure what to do. I think by using water and oceans as inspiration, it allowed me to really explore materials and techniques, and to not worry so much about having to draw an image. I had fun learning how to create different textures and surfaces, and to create depth and atmosphere by using only a thin copper plate!
Haha remember when I said I would post something everyday?? It starts NOW!
