The United States Mint is announcing a Call for Artists in September 2018 to grow its pool of contract coin designers in The Artistic Infusion Program (AIP).
I was selected in 2010 to become an AIP designer and was privileged to work with Chief Engraver, John Mercanti who told me “this will be the most challenging part of your career as an artist”. Indeed, it was a call to higher standards of originality, accuracy and creativity as an artist and a storyteller.
I am honored today with the opportunity to work with the wonderful people on staff at The United States Mint along with some of the best artists in the country to create lasting impressions of the American experience through numismatic art. My designs appear on over 20 U.S. coins and medals including the 2018 America the Beautiful Quarter® for Block Island National Wildlife Refuge featured above.
