For y-e-a-r-s now I've been dreaming of applying to an artist residency abroad and making art in a completely different country. So I applied - and my proposal to explore, then paint the caves of the Lot region, as my subject matter was accepted!
Sharing a bit of my process in making my diving experiences more tangible. I've taken much inspiration from almost all my dives and if I don't have a photo or video from the dive, my memories and impressions from those dives are also part of my process in making art.
Sometimes the process of making the art is even more exciting than the actual finished piece. Almost. Yes - there's a sense of accomplishment in finishing the work but bringing it into being is magical. Here's a glimpse into my latest work in progress.
