PARIS… HERE I AM

21 Sep

Bonjour:)

I am finally out here and working on this amazing residency. For those who dont know I am in Paris until October 15th doing an artist residency. I am so in love with this place. Today marks a week that me and Daniela Capistrano have been here making art and documenting it. I am creating several prints while I’m here, wheat pasting the streets, painting 3 murals and teaching a youth workshop while filmmaker Daniela Capistrano captures it all. We have a blog up and running that Daniela put together, check it out: http://grrrlweinparis.tumblr.com/
