Video of My NICAA Artist Talk


In 2020 Northwest Indiana Community Art Association Inc. (NICAA) arranged for me to do an lecture about my art and process for their group. When the in-person event was canceled due to Covid restrictions they arranged to have me record a video of my talk.

Watch the video.
