"From My Cold Dead Hands deals with loss, grief, and things worth clinging to."

I’ve been fortunate enough to experience Peters Valley as an assistant, an Artist Fellow and a student, all in consecutive years. While having access to a fully equipped studio and the time to really focus on my work was wonderful, the most valuable things I took from my time at Peters Valley was how to be a better teacher, a better studio manager and better community builder. In order for a place like Peters Valley to thrive, everyone has to give it their all, which I try to bring to building my community wherever I find it. Another thing I took away from my time in the Valley is the people I met, some for a whole summer, some for a few days. While I may not be in touch with most of them, they are all still near and dear to my heart.
