On April 1st we announced the Montross Mural Studio Scholarship winner!  The incredible recipient, Kayla Payne from Washington & Lee H.S. in Montross, VA, will join my week long Mural Workshop this July.  I’m so happy to have her…She is bright, talented, ambitious, and has some wonderful goals for her future as a creator.

In choosing Kayla, I did have the unfortunate responsibility of rejecting the other aspiring young artists who applied for that same scholarship.  To them I say, It was an incredibly difficult decision for me to make.  You are all wonderfully talented.  One of my great professors at Art Center once told me…’It doesn’t matter how many ‘NO’ responses you receive – each one brings you closer to the one ‘YES’!!!  that will change your life.  I believe this 100%
