Journey Preparation

Kia ora all,

Tomorrow I will be leaving to Bangkok for a three month art residency, thanks to the Asia New Zealand Foundation, Art HOF in Bangkok (my hosts), and the people who wrote generous references for my application. To be given the opportunity to explore a new culture and city, while making art, is a luxury and privilege most only dream about. I know that over the next year I will be pouring my heart into this project and the artworks that come out of it. Please keep checking back. I appreciate emails, feedback, and a bit of accountability.

Over the next three months, I expect to be creatively inspired and challenged. I will be taking a lot of photographs, making a truck-load of drawings and preparing plates to be printed back in New Zealand. I will try to post on here a couple of times each week - with plenty of images.

The first photograph is from West Wanaka, not too far from where I'm currently living.
