So long, Wisconsin

My final summer in Wisconsin has come and gone, and I  have u-hauled  my belongings southward to Knoxville, TN to begin my quest for an MFA in printmaking at the University of Tennessee. Coined the “scruffy little city by  the river,” Knoxville is tucked  in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains – and as a  Midwesterner accustomed to a flatter landscape, I am delighted by the lush  hills surrounding the city and looming in the distance. That being said, I feel  a great sense of nostalgia for the sprawling landscapes of my  northern homeland.


Farewell to the familiar surroundings of Northeastern Wisconsin farmlands.


Pleased to be in close proximity to the majestic Smoky Mountains.
