A couple of years ago one of my images made the Artfield's Competition held annually in Lake City, South Carolina. It's a fun filled art festival that attracts a large number of people and interest not only locally, but on a national level as well. Last year I didn't submit anything, but I am happy to announce and honored to be a part of this year's Artfield's competition as a 2D-artist again. Looking forward to seeing my friends and all the interesting visual arts on display at this year's Artfields!
