The residency was fully funded, and culminated in an exhibition and catalogue. The four paintings I made during the residency are now in the permanent collection at the new Mark Rothko Centre in Daugavpils, along with work by other residents and original Mark Rothko paintings.

Fellowships

Selected for a 'Schoolhouse at Mutianyu Great Wall Fellowship' (China), for the month of August, 2016. Funded by my hosts and culminating in a solo exhibition of paintings made during the Fellowship.
