First Post

This blog is my connection to my American art family as I travel abroad and prepare for my Fall 2019 Master of Fine Arts Thesis exhibition.

If you have not heard, I am excited to share with you that I am the recipient of the San Jose Dublin Sister Cities Pat McMahon Post-Graduate Exchange Scholarship for the Humanities! I will be spending the next eight months in Dublin, Ireland and returning in Fall 2019 for my final semester at San Jose State University.  

In Dublin I will be studying new media approaches to art making at Dublin City University and interning with the Dublin City Arts Office. When I am not bouncing around the city, I will be traveling the country side to explore my ancestral homeland and the history of Irish art. This extraordinary journey is a culminating moment in my masters research in how spirituality, nature, and technology are woven into contemporary art. I am so thankful to the SJSU Art faculty and fellow students who have supported my aspirations and guided me to this point.
