Piscataqua Artist’s Advancement Grant

I am thrilled and grateful to the NH Charitable Foundation as I am the recipient of their Piscataqua Artist’s Advancement Grant for 2019. I will be traveling to England to draw and study ancient trees in the landscape and posting updates on my Facebook Page (Victoria Elbroch). The grant will allow unhurried time to abandon the tried and true, stretch my imagination and see where the creative process takes my work. I will include my own roots in the endeavor, looking up my ancestors in graveyards and libraries and also  raise awareness about the warming planet and our dependence on trees when I return.
