Solo show announcement!

Hello! It's been an incredibly busy summer so far. Lots of work in the studio thankfully means lots of shows! I want to let you know about my upcoming SOLO show (I'm incredibly excited about it!!!) and some really great places to see other new work. I also want to thank all those who assisted me in the studio, getting ready for shows, and your encouragement. It truly means the world to me! Jenny
