Greenland residency

Slow time - Fast time


I have just returned from a research residency in West Greenland during April/May, living at Oqaatsut, a remote and weather-exposed village near Disko bay. 
I  kept a Blog during my residency, so If you would like to see what I was doing click on the link below
Thank you to all the wonderful people who bought my small paintings on Instagram as match-funding.

         Plus support by Unst Wild Skies Project, Baltasound School, UHI Lerwick, SPS College Ilulissat
         who are collaborating with me on the project

          Conversations between landscapes

   - a solargraphic project linking Greenland and Shetland.
