Residency Concept: I'm currently working on a series, Nesting, that focuses on nests, hives, and other homes built by various pollinators, especially wasps and bees. Australia has quite a bit of diversity with these nest builders, and I'm visiting Australia to research these creatures and the homes they create.
The finished product for this series will include an artist's book that pairs etchings and paintings with poetry and writings from my research. I'm hoping to use your residency as a place to mentally digest this new information and to begin or edit much of the writing for this project.
