I would like to thank Curator Christina Haley, the Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery, and the University of Dallas for hosting “Shape-shifter: Drawing from Observation”. It was great to visit for the reception and do an on site drawing demonstration for the campus community. Drawing specific shows such as this give me the opportunity to meet other artists working in the field. Notably, for this show, I met Trevor Bennett and Mayuko Ono Gray. In addition, I was able to reconnect with one of my peers from my graduate school experience at Southern Illinois University Carbondale – Steven Foutch.
