MY CV

 

2013

ONE SPARK, CROWD-SOURCED EXHIBITION AND FUNDRAISING EVENT (ARTIST, GROUP EXHIBITION)

Robinson stated, There I will be showing portions of my latest series Altar Ego. I will also be painting people live.
The great thing about being accepted by One Spark is the chance to get my work funded. If you know anyone or
any organizations in the Jacksonville area please push this along. The four day event promises live music, art of all
kinds, new inventions and more. See: https://plus.google.com/109363736260881161308
