I'm so happy to be at VCCA, I was delayed in getting here by FEMA!! They deployed me for a four-week training, which was abruptly ended when Hurricane Sandy made landfall on October 29. Being in Breezy Point one day after the deluge, then in the Rockaways for days, is giving me a lot to work with. I can't stress enough what a relief it is to be in the studio. I'm supported here by a Cafritz Foundation Fellowship.
