2015, Recipient: Artistic Innovation Grant
Selected as one of fifteen artists and arts organizations within the Mid-America Arts Alliance partner states to receive an Artistic Innovations (INNOV) grant. INNOV grants support the creation of new work within the 2015 fiscal year, and require a 1-1 match by the recipients whose proposals were selected by an independent panel of arts professionals and then approved by the M-AAA board of directors.
My proposal, And Then, I: Monuments to Pivotal Moments begins with a mini-tour in 3 Arkansas towns of three multi-figured ceramic sculpture installations suggesting significant turning points in women’s lives. Each installation will be placed in public spaces such as hospitals, libraries, and community centers and will invite viewer response (written, electronic, and mobile). A culminating exhibit in central Arkansas in June 2015 will integrate the art work and collected feedback to combine visual prompt with personal anecdote and story sharing.
The project is supported in part by an award from Mid-America Arts Alliance, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Arkansas Arts Council, and foundations, corporations and individuals throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.

The Idea of Home
As a young girl, I trampled Johnson grass in an empty lot behind our house to create my-size rooms with tall walls of rustling green. In those days kids roamed about in abandoned spaces exploring the world, and I brought what I found on my journeys to my Johnson grass home to arrange and combine them—filling my spaces with all kinds of treasured detritus that I knew my older sister would think silly, and my mother wouldn’t allow inside our house. From an early age, no matter where I’ve lived, my idea of home has always been associated with gathering, making, and building. My idea of home has also included or referenced what’s outside and nature-made, as much as what is inside and fabricated by human hands. My love of the creative process, my appreciation for structure, and my fascination with the formal elements of found objects engages me in art-making today with the same absorption that inspired me to fill my Johnson grass houses.
