Earlier this year, I was awarded an artist residency in a small town outside of Barcelona, Spain. In October, I will be travelling abroad to complete one month dedicated to advancing my studio practice. The main purpose of this residency is to provide undivided time to indulge in my artistic ideas; yet, creative inspiration and progress do not only occur in the studio setting. Other aspects as to why I applied for a residency in Spain are to explore the wide variety of museums and architecture, practice the language, and to be fully immersed in the mediterranean culture. Having never been to this Catalan region before, I´m hoping to grow not only in my artwork, but also through the life experience of spending a month outside of the comforts of my native country and culture.
