Just before my final show in Austin, I was asked some questions about the Austin Art Scene by Robert Faires, the Arts Editor for the Austin Chronicle. In the midst of setting up the show as well as packing up my belongings before heading to Kansas City, I exchanged some emails and fleshed out my thoughts about my experience in Austin as a self employed artist.
After a while, I finally got the courage to read my own words, and I think it turned out alright. Here’s a link to the interview about my time spent in the Austin Art Scene.
It’s been a fantastic twelves years in Austin, and I’m extremely grateful about the hardworking folks I’ve been able to surround myself with during my time here. Being a part of the East Austin Studio Tours, helping to see the landscape of the art scene develop and take hold in different ways as the city itself changed drastically was exciting. It was always flattering to spend months putting together curated shows and to have people in the Austin art scene come up to me days, months and years later and still mention them in glowing terms.
It’s been a great time in Austin, and I look forward to continuing all the relationships I’ve developed over the years as my career takes a turn in Kansas City.
