I'm pleased to announce that the American Academy in Rome has selected me as a Visiting Artist for a six week residency at the Academy in Rome.

During my stay I plan to immerse myself in Rome's architecture, arts and people, and to learn from the accomplished group of scholars and artists that will be sharing the experience with me. 

The American Academy in Rome is dedicated to bringing a diverse group of scholars, artists and musicians from around the world to Rome each year. The program is designed to encourage interactions across disciplines (for example, the meals are communal to stimulate conversation, fresh thinking and new friendships). The Academy website is very informative and describes their program in detail (www.aarome.org) .


I'm grateful for this opportunity. There should be some great new paintings in the coming years as a result of this experience!
