On June 5, 2008, I received a letter from the Community Foundation in Jacksonville informing me that at its May 9, 2008 artist review panel, I was recommended to receive a $3,500 grant for materials to create new patterns in woodblock printing in order to produce a series reflective of Africa. The Board of Trustees of the Community Foundation approved the recommendation at its meeting on May 27, 2008. The grant is made from funds provided by the J. Shepherd Jr. and Mary Ann Bryan Arts Endowment.
This is my first grant and I am greatly honored to be chosen as a recipient.
Now busy to work producing!
