The year 2022 was another landmark for Daydrawing. From April 2022 through March 2023 the daily project takes up residence at Milwaukee's oldest and most prestigious hotel, The Pfister. I am honored to be selected as their 13th Artist-In-Residence.

Since setting up the studio here, the daily works are informed by stories of the people visiting the hotel. The studio is open to the public, who are invited to sit down and share their thoughts, stories, or poems using a vintage Smith-Corona typewriter that lives in the studio. Their collected tales inform the daily work. As visitors purchase individual pieces for their own collections, the united narrative is dispersed around the world, further linking us all to one another.

If you would like to participate in this process by collecting or viewing the 2022 drawings or sharing a note, you can find me and the drawings at The Pfister through March, 2023. Most of the pieces from 2022 are in the studio, located on the first floor, just off the lobby.

More drawings from 2022 will be available here at a later date, in the meantime visit the Pfister Studio to collect works from the Residency.
