View previous version: January 2020

This page is an ever-evolving list of my goals, short term, and long term, as well as a few of my recent accomplishments. These goals aren't just about art, but my life in general, some couldn't feel further away, while I am taking active steps towards others. The purpose of this list is also to supplement my CV and give you a window into my aspirations and life.

Current Focus

● My nearly singular current focus is on my first semester of art school.

The summer is coming to a close. I am starting my BA with a Major in Fine Art this fall. Some months ago, I chose to attend NSCAD. I was uncertain then and remain that way now. Perhaps there is little difference, but I feel that I chose NSCAD not because of what opportunities I was eager to seize but for those I was afraid to miss out on.

I am still drawn to the idea of studying Biology, wildlife, plants, particularly trees, and even agriculture. I had hoped that with time I would become more confident in my choice. I think regardless of what I had decided to do, I would fear that I would be missing out on something greater elsewhere. I try to view this as an opportunity to explore and develop my art, and not as a limitation or an obligation of my future. I'm quite nervous about starting classes but excited to see what in store for me at NSCAD.
