ARTIST LAUREATE AWARD INFO

What did the Fellowship or Laureate mean to you at the time you received it?

The validation was tremendously valuable - especially that the award recognized community impact as well as my theatre work. Really brought that mix into focus for me.

What do you do now? Has your art evolved or changed?

I'm very much doing the same blend, but with new projects every season. I try to direct each play with a new attitude, a new approach, matching whatever that particular script or topic might need. Go to the TheatreWorks website to see some production stills of plays I?ve directed: http://www.theatreworks.org/shows/production/waterbythespoonful

What is one piece of advice you would give to an emerging artist?

Find your people. Collaborators or sounding boards or supporters - no fun to do all of it alone.

Briefly, how would you describe the state of the arts locally, as well as national and beyond?

It's always spring - new growth.
