Willapa Bay 2015

I was very fortunate to be an artist resident at Willapa Bay AiR in May, 2015. The residency allowed me to work for 4 weeks undistracted by any quotidian concerns. Below are photos of the environment that inspired me, followed by a selection of paintings made during the residency. The paintings are mixed media (watercolor ink, acrylics, graphite, charcoal, repurposed drawing fragments, and the occasional marine exoskeleton) on paper. 

Some of the paintings in the Littoral gallery were made during the residency as well.
