traci haymans tribute

SCAD completes renovations on its new Haymans Hall this week.  The building will grandly host the college's illustration department where Traci Haymans educated and delighted for some two decades. Today Matt Hebermehl and I began work on a portrait of the woman who appreciated the macabre, knives and the writing of Edgar Allen Poe.  We spent the day painting, but also remembering Traci along with others who visited.

We are honored to be a part of this tribute and to do so in a manner that represents the education, support and mentoring we have received in so many of the institution's halls.
