Clarissa Wins Tulsa Artist Residency


Grandma Rissy with Mamma Lily holding Louis – Sandy Beach, Douglas, AK  – July 2014

I will be moving away for a year starting January 2nd.  Moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma for the entire year of 2016.  It will be the first time:  1) living in a city bigger than 60,000, 2) living away from any family, relatives or friends (like nobody there knows me), 3) living away from nature as I will be living right down town in the Brady Arts District

I am 1 of 12 inaugural  artists from across the U.S. who will be essentially paid to live in Tulsa, given a brand new apartment with the option of a separate studio.  Click here to read about the TAR and the other 11 selected artists.

Although I am excited about “living on my own” away from everything that I love, I know that I am going to especially miss my grandchildren!
