Greetings! Thank you for checking my website, and for reading my blog. This online journal is all abut my ongoing adventures as a graduate student at the College of William and Mary. For readers who are already familiar with my work, this is a continuation of my old blog, The Fanciful Lobster. For new readers, welcome!
For newcomers, let me tell you a little about myself. I’m a PhD student in the College’s American Studies Program. I have a Master’s in art history from Williams College, and did my undergraduate work at Lake Forest College. I moved to Williamsburg from New Mexico about a week ago, so I’m still settling in here.
Before going back to school for my doctorate, I spent five years as the Curator of Collections and Exhibitions at the Roswell Museum and Art Center in New Mexico. I’ve also held curatorial positions at Shelburne Museum, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the National Museum of Wildlife Art. I’ve been able to work on more than forty exhibitions, including the retrospective, Magical and Real: Henriette Wyeth and Peter Hurd.
So what will I talk about on this blog? I imagine a lot of it will be about my academic work, since that’s what I’ll be spending most of my time doing. I’ll also talk about any interesting sketches I do, or trips I happen to take. Basically I’ll talk about what’s happening in my life.
Thank you for joining me on this adventure, and I look forward to sharing this new chapter of my life with you.
