As the 1st runner up in the Wallace Awards, I was situated as next in line for a residency if any of the other artists could not attend. Lucky me, (and thanks Julia De Ville) I'm off to the Vermont Studio Centre residency next year in the USA. The residency is a great opportunity to immerse and develop my practice, amidst the company of another 49 international artists, very excited. I'll be away from May till August 2014 and will be exhibiting work from the residency sometime shortly after with a show at Page Blackie Gallery in Wellington.
