I am absolutely thrilled to be receiving the Arts Act Grant by Create Louth this year in support of my artist residency at the wonderful Arteventura.

The artist residency Arteventura is located in the far northwest of Andalusia in Spain, at about 100 km of Seville, in the heart of the nature reserve “Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche”.

During this residency, I will focus on researching new ideas and concepts, experimenting with a selection of materials, taking photographs within the nature reserve and getting back to my practice in a more profound way after recovering from a severe covid illness followed by Long Covid. I am keen to reacquaint myself with my practice and continue the explorations I started here during previous residencies.

I am very grateful to be supported by Create Louth for this project and I believe this is the perfect setting for me to begin moving my work to its next phase.
