I’m thrilled to announce that I have been awarded an RSA Residency for Scotland working with An Lanntair arts centre in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis.

My project will involve research at a croft house, and shielings on Tolsta Mohr, experimenting with contemporary painting methods  to explore personal and collective memory.

Residencies for Scotland is an artist-led scheme which enables visual artists a period of research, development and production at partner venues across Scotland. This year, thirteen artists have been awarded a total of £55,000 for residencies at partner venues across Scotland.

“An Lanntair is a hub for creativity and the Arts in the Outer Hebrides. We are a multi arts venue – at one and the same time a contemporary art gallery, a theatre, a cinema, a dance studio, a concert hall, a platform for poetry and literature, a studio – every space stretched to showcase the Arts in multiple forms. Our work stretches across a national and international platform, yet our distinctiveness lies in being ‘of the place’, rooted in who we are, and the creativity of Gaelic and the Outer Hebrides takes centre stage.”

Our mission is “to connect and inspire people in producing extraordinary, creative programmes, uniquely rooted in the place and reflecting the Arts and ideas of our time”.
