Let me just say, I have wandered every single inch of this town and the most fun I’ve had with shopping is this Flea Market. It’s a tourist town, but I’m from New York so I don’t want to feel like a tourist shopping around and I also don’t want to barge in on someone else’s culture improperly. I ran into familiar faces who were vendors at the fair and there were all kinds of hidden gems. I walked away with a tiny silver spoon that was a gift from a vendor and a deerskin choker necklace with snake vertebrae.

So for the rest of the summer, I’ll be living in Taos, New Mexico during my residency at the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation. I’ve been here about a week and all I can say is that my life has already changed in that short period of time. My health has been bad since past August, which as many of you know has forced me to stop making artwork and exhibiting. Since I arrived, I don’t stop sketching out ideas in my notebook or writing down subjects that interest me about the Spanish and Native cultural influence in the town. I came here with the intention of creating spiritually themed work in performance as well as outdoor sculptures involving papercutting, and I cannot wait to share photos throughout my stay so keep checking back!
