Residency on Fogo Island

In a couple of days I leave for Newfoundland, Canada where I will be spending four weeks on residency. While there I will be living on Fogo Island, a very small island off the northeastern coast of the Island of Newfoundland.

This is a rare and brilliant opportunity to work and study away from all the distractions of daily life. Such residencies give artists a chance live and work in a unique environment so that they may focus solely on their studio practice.  In addition, Fogo Island offers inspiration through its rugged and beautiful environment.  I plan to deeply savor this once in a lifetime opportunity. Internet access pending, I hope to share photos and drawings during my journey.
