2019 Portfolio Book still available featuring paintings made in France at the prestigious artist residency Château d'Orquevaux
I was awarded an Artist-In-Residence at the Chateau d'Orquevaux in Champagne-Ardenne, France and attended In June 2018. I was also awarded the A.i.R Grant. My work is now a part of the Chateau’s permanent collection.
This was an exhilarating time for me, The residency allowed me to explore abstract painting and a wider colour palette.
You can see my France work in the Paintings page of this website.
"This magnificent estate in the French countryside of Champagne-Ardenne offers artists a place with limited distraction and an abundance of natural inspiration. The idea for an artist residency was conceived by the owners in an effort to share this exceptional environment with other artists." Château d'Orquevaux
