Mustarinda Artist Residency, Finland

Fantastic news! I have been accepted on a two month artist residency at Mustarinda in Finland for September and October.

"The Mustarinda House is situated on the second highest summit in the Kainuu region, adjacent to the north-east edge of the Paljakka nature reserve. The surrounding view is of valuable, and in some places, completely untouched old-growth forests. Paljakka and Mustarinda are also some of Finland’s snowiest areas. Mustarinda is the only inhabited house on the summit."

"Residency is partly supported by Ministry of Education and Culture, Arts Promotion Centre Finland, Kone Foundation and The Finnish Cultural Foundation."

I plan to focus primarily on working on my series of large scale wall hanging paintings and I'm looking forward to producing a lot of new work, and experiencing the environment and atmosphere of the forest and Mustarinda house.
