Lights, Camera...

This past week, East Tennessee PBS reached out to me and came to my studio to interview me about my artwork for their program, "Tennessee Life." What a fun day!

It's always gratifying when others take an interest in what we do, and I appreciated the opportunity to share more with them about my artwork as part of a larger program they're producing to feature east Tennessee landscapes and cityscapes.

The program producer, Stephanie Aldrich, and her camera man, Brudd, hauled all of their lights, cameras, and production equipment up to my studio in the second floor of our home and set up for a wide-ranging interview about my background, current work including my painting series of "Thirty from Tennessee," and how I landed in Knoxville last summer. We even ventured outdoors for a brief stop along the Tennessee River to see how I set up for my plein air field work. Luckily, we finally had a day without rain (!).

The interview segment will air during the third weekend in April, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it all comes together. I'll post a link to their YouTube channel when it's available. I'm grateful for this opportunity and I hope it will be the first of many steps in introducing my artwork to Tennessee as my husband and I continue to settle into Knoxville following our relocation from Pennsylvania last summer.
