Artist in residence

There are a variety of formats for an “Artist in Residence”, but the basic idea is that you go somewhere and dedicate a set amount of time to pursuing a new project or learning a new medium. Resources available to support the artists vary, but there is usually a stipend or free studio space or free materials or free training… I have been fortunate enough to be an Artist in Residence three times now, and will use this space to share images of the exhibitions and resulting artwork.

I have password protected some of the galleries on this website to prevent bots from collecting images. The password for the Japan gallery is, “Japan”.
