I expanded my use of scale by producing larger images printed on fabric and developed my artistic abilities and vision through the construction of a wallpapered environment for my images. I evaluated the success of this achievement by recording what I learned about planning, trouble-shooting difficult gallery spaces, and defining for myself what print-based installation work looks like in my studio practice beyond my initial assumptions. 2: In terms of business skills, I learned a tremendous amount about setting up a screen print studio to facilitate my needs. I also developed my skills in speaking cogently about my work, through an artist talk and informal classroom visit at Gustavus Adolphus College, where I made a specific effort to address why I use print-based media, and how I perceive my use of narrative and engagement with site. I evaluated these achievements by reworking my talk for two subsequent public lectures, and also redesigning the layout of my new studio space.
