I'm delighted to share that I have been allocated 4 days and nights, fully funded, at the beautiful Hawkwood College near Stroud. Whilst it is not far geographically for me, it will allow me to escape from daily distractions and commit completely to my practice, better than any summer holiday for me.
So I'm busy packing my bags and sorting out things to work with. Books, computers and materials. Walking things, music, headphones and a head full of thoughts about the Severn River. Hopefully I shall return refreshed and fulfilled with sufficient work to move onto the next phase of the Severn project – that of producing a publication. The research and drawing development has been made possible thanks to a grant from Arts Council England.
I have a number of original drawings and prints available for sale at various venues, see here. The sale of artworks goes towards funding the publication. Contact me directly if you prefer – firstname.lastname@example.org – the majority of works for sale are on this website.
So back to packing, I will try and update with my progress, when I come up for air occasionally.
Thank you Hawkwood.
This residency has been funded by Hawkwood, Strike a Light, Arts Council England and The Reckitt Arts Trust.
