Residencies are critical in the development of work. To investigate a sense of belonging, place and identity it is important to put myself into different environments. To be able to immerse myself in a place without the distractions of “everyday life” is magical.

To enter a place and absorb it through its people, animals, geography, weather and to use this experience to make work of that place.Residencies to date have included the Arthur Boyd property Bundanon NSW, Injalak Arts Gunbalanya – Arnhem Land, Gunnedah NSW, Araluen – Alice Springs NT, ANU School of Art Canberra, Central Tafe Perth, and the University of Tasmania(Launceston).
