Better Late Than Never

This post is a bit late because a lot has been going on in my life. Unfortunately I had to leave Iceland and the artist residency a couple of weeks early. Sadly there was a tragic family emergency and it was very important for me to come back home.

I really had an amazing time in Iceland and hope to go back some day. Although my time there was shorter than planned I did get a lot done. I finished several large weaving projects and completed 6 smaller encaustics.

Life has been chaotic and difficult lately and I haven’t really had time to reflect on my adventure. I just wanted to get something posted because I know there are a lot of people wondering about the trip and residency. Hopefully soon I will be able to write a fabulous post filled with all the wonderful tales of my Icelandic journey.

For now here is a link to my pictures:
