Spring Arrives: Pictures from the Everyday

While attending an incredibly demanding art school full-time, working three jobs during the week and extra ones on the weekends, trying to produce an incredibly meaningful and thoughtful body of work while competing for scholarships and trying desperately to secure summer plans that will magically help your artist’s career while earning money – life is stressful.  It can be hard to even remember what has happened, but thankfully, this is where camera phones come to the rescue.  Here’s an Instagram series from the past month or so to celebrate that, despite unfathomable levels of stress, life is actually full of wonderful things, all the time.  Enjoy!
