about Greatmore Studios

Greatmore Reports, 2008

I arrived on a dark, rainy and windy morning, which was -of course- not the image we foreigners expect from Cape Town. Taking a shared shuttle from the airport to the artist house in Milner street, where nobody was informed or ready for my arrival, seemed a bit rough.

about Instituto Sacatar

Two Months of Magic at the Instituto Sacatar, 2011

The Instituto Sacatar (Bahia, Brazil) is popular with artists, musicians and performers from all over the world. Even though you can see the rapidly expanding city of Salvador from the pier, Itaparica has the laid back atmosphere of a tropical island.

about ARTCEB International Residency Program

Residency at ArtCEB, Botopasi, Suriname, 2011

Botopasi is a small village deep in the vast expanse of mostly untouched Amazonian rainforest in the interior of Suriname, South America. Populated by the friendly Saramaccan people, Botopasi is a special location. It is extremely remote. We had to travel several hours by boat to reach the village from the last stop of the roadway (although small airplanes do service Botopasi).

about Grand Canyon Artist-in-Residence Program

4-week residency in the Grand Canyon National Park South, 2012

My residency application was made in the early spring of 2011 and I was notified of my success in May of the same year. I believe that around 160 applications were made for the South Rim, there are 12 residencies a year and during that season 3 of us were British. Generally residencies are for 3 weeks but I was fortunate to be invited for 4.

about Kanaal 10 Guest Studio

My days in the house, or how I survived the dutch croquettes, 2014

When I first applied for Doklaan, I didn’t know what to expect. Dream Circus Project was just at the beginning and I was looking for a place to make it work outside my country. Also, I used to study in Groningen and wanted to go back to Holland for a while. I never lived in Amsterdam. I was curious about the city and the art scene.
