I want to thank OSA and its members for your constant support. This is my fourth and final scholarship award and each one has been instrumental in helping me to further my practice. Whether it was used to buy film or explore experimental printing techniques(which has been paramount in both this and last year’s submission,) the Ojai Studio Artist Scholarship has always enabled me to dig deeper into the projects I develop. It is so amazing that Ojai Studio Artists is able to raise money from the Ojai community and give that money back to artists working in the community. In addition to the financial support, it is also affirmation of the artistic work being produced, which is often just as important for the working artist!
