I am so honored to have been invited to be a part of The Harding Art Show 2022. I met some incredible artists who were super welcoming. Many pieces of my artwork found their forever homes in Nashville, TN.
This was my first trip to the Nashville area where I stayed in a cozy AirBNB, ate great vegan food, and enjoyed the scenic drive there and back through the Great Smoky Mountains.
I am so grateful to all of the amazing people who helped make this event a huge success!
Special shoutout to these amazing individuals:
Mo from Solidarity&Co. who was there as my assistant for setup, take down, and was super supportive throughout the process.
Katie Trokey who was my booth buddy and is an inspiring abstract impressionistic painter.
