I am a recipient of a 2014 multi-disciplinary artist fellowship grant from the Somerville Arts Council. Being supported by a city filled to the brim with talented artists, writers and musicians is an honor. There are too many times when I, and all of the remarkable artists that I am grateful to know, are unable to continue or begin work that fills our minds, hearts, sketchbooks, etc. because of the financial burden. I don't anticipate ever being rid of that burden, but to have a city help assuage it is a blessing. Thanks be to the SAC, and everyone else who has supported my work over the years.
