>Beading a Résumé


Each day, I get closer and closer to finishing my beaded White House, but the details are what make it a slow process. I did finish beading the columns on the center section of the house, but I think I want to layer them with more beads to make them stand out even more. We’ll see about that. I also have to try to create beaded railings on this section. Then, I can move on to the roof…

Besides beading, I have been busy updating my artist resume. I am required to bring one with me when I drop off my bead-painting at the Cambridge Art Association for the upcoming Northeast Prize Show. Compared to most other artists, my resume is pretty short, but here’s what I have so far:

How do you think it looks so far? Is there anything I should add or omit? I still have to work on my Artist Statement a bit, but I do plan to include that, as well. I also plan to include a statement about my painting just in case anyone is interested. Looks like I have some writing to do! 😮

  1. >The columns look awesome. Your resume looks fantastic. Like one bead at a time…it’s one exhibition, one award, one commission and one publication at a time. You will be adding to that resume more and more…you and your beadwork are going places, dear heart!!! ~Lisa
