Back in 2011, I was very thankful that I was chosen as the winner of Niche Awards in sculptural wear category. I really want to give special thanks to all my metal buddies and faculties at CSULB, without their support I wouldn't stand where I am today. Thank you guys! So for this upcoming year of 2013 I was encouraged to apply, I'll be applying for the same category for those who are wondering. The pieces that I submitted... are going to surprise for now but they will be revealed later! They are NEW work that I finished last semester as a graduate student. I began to incorporate paper in my work and I really enjoyed working with it. So to be continued... I'm anxious to hear back in couple months, wish me luck!
