Exciting News - Artist in Residence

I received exciting news today that I have been chosen to participate in the Artist in Residence Program for Breckenridge, CO. This program provides the time a space for a guest artist to work on their medium while providing opportunities for the public to interact with the artist in the form of open studio hours and hands-on workshops.

Breckenridge is a wonderful ski town in western Colorado with Victorian architecture, fun shops and galleries, great winter sports and beautiful summer hiking trails. A fantastic place to spend time creating art!

Tin Shop
I will be staying in the historic Tin Shop which provides studio space on the first floor and living quarters above. This buiding is the first guest artist facility in the growing Arts District in Breckenridge. I will be there the first two weeks of November and will focus on my Watercolor Batiks - with my own painting and the workshops that I offer to the public.

I will keep you posted on my journey as I get ready for my time in Breckenridge and of course all that I get to experience while I am there. This is such an exciting opportunity and I am honored to be a part of it - thank you to my good friend Jean who encouraged me to apply!


  1. CONGRATULATIONS MARTHA! I am so excited for you, you deserve the time and opportunity to focus on your painting alone. You will have a wonderful time in one of my favorite little mountain towns! I can not wait to see what you produce!

  2. How exciting and what an opportunity. Congratulations!

  3. Thank you both - I am very excited!

  4. Congratulations Martha! I have thought about doing an artist in residence. Please let me know how it goes. It is so nice to see someone else local with a blog. I was beginning to think I was the only one. I have added a link to your blog on my blog.
