I have just arrived back home in Tasmania after 6 weeks away doing an artist residency at the beautiful Tiapapata Arts Centre in Samoa!

The residency was an amazing opportunity to develop new work, influenced by the bright colours and patterns of these fascinating islands. I was also invited to create a hanging mobile, purpose built for the high ceilings of the Tiapapata Arts Centre’s gallery space.

We finished the residency with an exhibition of my work and work by students from the various art classes that I ran during the residency.

The patterns and designs in these works will form the basis for a body of work that I’ll continue to develop back home in Australia.
