I am so happy to announce that I have been awarded a painting residency at The Chateau Orquevaux in France in June. Two weeks of uninterrupted bliss in one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen: Artists at the Chateau. Please visit the site to apply for a residency.
"Our mission is to create an environment where all artists are welcome. A safe place to explore, contemplate and share ideas. A place where artists can be free of explaining themselves and... to create a vibrant artistic community. The Chateau d'Orquevaux Artist Residency emphasizes the human experience and the creative process. The residency creates a safe environment for the artist in their quest for personal growth and artistic expression - while reinforcing that the end product is not necessarily the principal focus. Life is a creative journey and every moment is part of the process."
"New experiences stimulate creativity and revitalize the creative mind. For this reason our residency is self-motivated and self-catering. The artist must immerse himself or herself in the French country lifestyle. The things you thought you knew back home will begin to look different. This magnificent estate in the French countryside of Champagne-Ardenne is a unique environment, offering artists a place with limited distraction and an abundance of natural inspiration."
