Creative Renewal Arts Fellow - In 1999, the Arts Council of Indianapolis, with generous support from the Lilly Endowment, established the Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship program. Originally conceived as a renewal opportunity similar to an academic sabbatical, this groundbreaking initiative offers mid-career artists and arts administrators the opportunity to renew and refresh their creativity. In it's 9th round, the fellowship offers 30 artists and arts administrators $10,000 for an 18 month fellowship period.

I am also a freelance editor (formerly editor of Arts Indiana Magazine) and teach creative writing at the Writers’ Center of Indiana. I am currently seeking publication of my first novel, The Mother’s Room. As a visual artist I work primarily in the mediums of painting and ceramics.” Thibodeaux
