I am a jersey city-based artist interested in combining my narrative paintings with different textile production techniques. In my most recent works, you can see my handmade textile pieces whether it be crochet, weaving, or knitting with painted figures incorporated. As most artists know, the time and money it takes to create a single piece could be astoundingly high. As a young artist reciving money to do what you love is the greatest dream come true. Not only does my grant pay for my texbooks for the university, but it also pays for a lot of my supplies, such as paints, brushes, yarn and anything else I need. I am granted access to studio spaces for a couple months out of the year which gives me the perfect environment to experement with my craft. But most importantly just to have smeone who believes in my artwork as much as I do I a big motivator to me and my work, I am beyond grateful.
