I have been invited among a few selected artists and scientists to participate in The Arctic Circle residency program in June 2016 and I couldn't be more excited for the opportunity. For three weeks the other residents and I will sail together on an ice class barkentine tallship exploring Svalbard, a High Arctic archipelago just ten degrees from the North Pole, observing, creating, and collaborating as we go.
It is roughly two months before I get on a plane headed for Svalbard, Norway... it is exciting and surreal. All of my plans are made and my focus now is on my preparation and fundraising.
Please visit my fundraising webpage above. There are special gifts and art rewards at a number of donation levels!
Stay tuned in for more updates and then ultimately a travel log of my time in the Arctic.
