Sabbatical Life

This past summer and spring I was excited to be able to take a sabbatical from teaching to work on some of my own studio projects and to travel a little. My True North and Drought Runes projects were the primary things I worked on but I also took a trip to Finland and Estonia to work on my art and to investigate a possible travel study program there for my students at Otis College. Some highlights were visiting the Marimekko textile factory, staying in a medieval monk’s home Airbnb in Estonia and doing daily drawings of the flora of Central Finland. I put together a little slideshow to share with my colleagues about my travels and here are a few images from it. Plus a pic of my insanely ambitions list of things to do while on sabbatical… Can’t say I did it all but I sure had a good time!
