Yesterday Niamh helped me prepare for the visit of the local art college to the studio. We made a list of questions staring from

my development as an Artist on leaving college?

how I got to no.72  as an Artist in residence?

 why I wanted to do the residency?

did my ideas change from my original proposal?

 what artists influenced me/ sources of inspiration?

 why did I chose to use sand, peat and stone?

 how has my interest in art in the environment developed?

  how has the space allowed me to develop my work?

 what am I going to do for the last few weeks/ after the residency?

how important is documentation of art work/ environmental work/ nature based work?

how important is the process?

what are the benefits of the residency, having a space,  keeping a blog?
