Why I am so excited!
I feel so honored and excited to be recognized for my efforts with arts education, illustration and design this past year. I am thankful for my friends and colleagues who nominated me in the Emerging Artist category. The list of nominees is amazing!

I am really looking forward to meeting some of the local artists and organizations that I admire and haven’t been able to meet just yet.

Everyone is invited!
The awards celebration is on Friday June 7th. Buy tickets online or call 520-624-0595. See you at the Lumies!
