In November of 2015, she completed a two-week residency at the Vermont Studio Center.
A native of California, Paige grew up in a Sacramento suburb with parking lots, strip malls, and look-alike houses as far as the eye could see. She has lived in cities big and small in the Bay Area, the Pacific Northwest, the East Coast, and Europe. But home still feels like home every time.
