This Asialink Arts Residency Project was generously funded by the Australia-China Council.
I used this opportunity and the purpose-built studios at Bundanon to develop an experimental drawing project, with the working title “Bower”.
The Bundanon Trust AIR Programme is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian Council for the Arts.
I used this is opportunity to further develop my interest in combining photography and drawing. The studio project culminated in my exhibition “Overlay” at Tin Sheds Gallery in October 2011.
Artspace Studio Programme is supported by the Australian Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, Arts NSW and by the Australia Council.

Using this inspiration, I developed a body of work with an architectural theme, which evolved into the installation drawing “Block”, a creative collaboration with Sydney artist, Jennifer O’Brien.
My residency was made possible by the generous funding of Bathurst Regional Gallery and Arts NSW.

During the residency, I took extensive photographs of the historical and contemporary architecture, as well as keeping an on-line visual diary of the daily sights and sounds of the city.
