Our Women Across Boundaries exhibit could not be going any better. The work looks beautiful in the space and all of our events have been successes. I just wish all my close friends and family back in the U.S. could see this show in person. On Friday, we had artist talks in English for the artist Ashley Roberts and myself.

At first, my experiments were a little cautious and had a lot of negative space in them. However, I bought more ink and started to experiment with dripping, staining, smearing, and then letting the pages … Continue reading My 100-Day Project: How it’s Going
