I'm so grateful to have been honored with the Arts Council of Fairfax 2014 Strauss Individual Artist Grant! It's an amazing feeling to be supported by the county where I have lived, raised a family, worked, and made music in for 25 years. I will use the $5,000 in funds for a new computer, two new versions of Logic and Pro Tools, more sound samples, my artist retreat at the VCCA, etc. and want to spread the word to other artists in the County! The next due date for applying is January 2015, and artists (visual, musical, and others) may apply every four years.
