The Arctic Circle Residency 

October 2021

I am thrilled to have been accepted to The Arctic Circle Residency Fall 2020 Expedition, the Art & Science Expedition. I will join a cohort of artists, writers, musicians and scientists aboard a barquentine ice-class sailing ship for a residency that begins in Svalbard off the coast of Norway. This is a dream residency for me, and I am over the moon to be invited to attend. I will be focusing on my calligraphic illuminations, hopefully under the illuminated skies of the aurora borealis, amidst the terrifying and beautiful world of sea and ice in the Arctic circle.
