I am thrilled to have begun my residency at Taos Clay! I have received such a lovely welcome from our community members and the fellow resident artists. Since my arrival early this month, I have been sketching the cacti, mountains and architecture that surround Taos. Some of these drawings have already begun to take shape as sgraffito decorations! I also look forward to teaching a surface design workshop next month as well as our upcoming seven-week youth arts class.
