For Drop-In Drawing we explored the Jeffrey Gibson: Like a Hammer exhibition. Gibson takes inspiration from his Choctaw and Cherokee heritage, pan-Native American culture, alternative subcultures, and autobiographical experiences to explore colonialism and the post-colonial mindest. He works with universal themes of strength, community, love, vulnerability, and survival.

This mesa on the eastern side of the Front Range rises 6,854-foot (2,089 m) and is located in William Frederick Hayden Park. I hike here every year in June during peak wildflower time to explore the beautiful flora.

Printing at Processus

Viviane le Courtois and Christopher R. Perez at Processus inspired me to create solar etchings. Solarplate etching is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional etching. My ink paintings on transparencies were layered onto a light sensitized steel backed polymer plate. UV light (or sunlight) etches the plate and then it's washed with tap water. With Viviane le Courtois and Christopher R. Perez's assistance, their UV light, and press, I created solar etchings and now I want to create more! The prints are on view at Processus' Altered Nature exhibition through May 19th.  ..read more
