Northern Iceland Excursion

On a recent trip around northern Iceland, I took a ton of photos that will be excellent inspiration material for projects!
Day 1: We took a boat to Drangey Island, learned about Grettir's Saga, hiked around, and ended the day at the Myvatn Nature Baths (good end to the day).

Drangey Island - so many Puffins!

Day 2: We went on a whale watching expedition, hiked around the Dimmuborgir lava formations and the Godafoss waterfall.

Nes Artist Residency, ICELAND

Skagaströnd, Iceland
I'm excited to be writing this post from Iceland, where I'm in the midst of an artist residency!  I'll be here, Nes Artist Residency, through the end of July.

While I'm here I'll be working on a series of drawings about melting glaciers, and continuing a series of performances I started in January.

Next week I'll be traveling around Northern Iceland, and there will surely be photos... keep an eye out for them!
