I was awarded an Artist Residency at the C-scape Dune Shack in Provincetown, MA for three weeks this summer! I am also the proud recipient of the fellowship-a stipend for my stay. I had the occasion to visit the dune shacks during one of my summer visits to the Cape. I was intrigued by the solitude a residency there could provide. The stories we were told about the dunes conjured up images of freedom, painting, and poetry. Spending time at the edge of the world, at the tip of deserted beach, in a small shack without a phone, running water, electricity or even a nearby road appeals to my over-stimulated senses. To paint, reflect and write for a few weeks in this space by myself would be an incomparable opportunity for growth in my work.
