My mentorship with Meredith has had a profound effect on my studio practice this year. With her encouragement, I have moved my woodcut designs to a whole new level, aesthetically if not technically. Meredith always has probing questions that cause me to dig deep and identify what is important to me, what excites me in my work, and what challenges I am facing. She has introduced me to many artists I had not previously known — artists whose work connects to mine in some way. Together we identify what I need to prioritize, plan for and schedule into the coming months to meet show deadlines and organize my studio administration.

My self-regard has grown under Meredith’s coaching, as I trust her completely and she sees value in my art practice and skills and expression.
