As a Studio Art major at Wesleyan, I am about to begin work on my senior thesis in painting. This experience, which I have looked forward to with excitement and anxiety since my freshman year, will culminate in an exhibition of my work in Wesleyan's Zilkha Gallery in April 2015. For my thesis I plan to infuse my painting practice with the interests I have acquired through my studies in sculpture, design, performance, and American studies at Wes and beyond over the past three years. While Wesleyan generously supplies its students with studio space, the amount of supplies I will need to purchase to complete a year's worth of work is daunting. By working as economically as possible, and putting money from campus jobs toward funding my process, I hope to be able to affordably create and complete my best and most ambitious artworks possible. All of your donations will go directly to art supplies (paint, canvas, gesso, brushes, etc...I am working to complile a detailed budget, though it will surely be changing as I go). I appreciate any amount of support toward my thesis--be it monetary, or simply coming out to see my and my fellow majors' work in the Spring. I promise to find a way to dutifuly pay tribute and thanks to all who chose to donate. Thank you so much!
