Duration of my residency
Reason(s) of the residency
The project depended on the location
exchange with other artists
What was my residency project?
My residency project was based in France due to my inspiration and
influence of the french landscape and it's people. I attended a couple of residencies in France for a month each to pursue my project. This was a great way for me to undertake my project as I was seeing different lighting from the landscapes for my work. The people also changed from different regions in the south to the north which made a big impact on my work.
During the residency, I took part in a public event

My opinion on artistay's service:
I found the artistay's service to be quick, efficient and they tailored to my needs to the kind of residency I was looking for. They gave me a few options that I could choose from and they catered for my needs to find the right residency I was looking for.
