In May 2017 I had my first art exhibit. What made it so special was not only that it was my first, but that it was at the Watertown Public Library, where I worked during my high school and college years. I spent most of my time in the children's department, so this venue was very appropriate, since my illustrations are largely inspired by those picture books, I used to shelve.
I don't think any of the librarians I worked with are still there. But if one had come by and told me to get to work, it really would have felt like home.
