Gushul Residency Studio

My collaborator Christopher Baldwin and I are happily in residence in the Gushul Studio in Blairmore, Crowsnest Pass, Alberta. It’s a historic “cottage” (read: airy studio with stunning views and generous living quarters attached) owned by the University of Lethbridge, and operated by that institution as the home of its artist in residence program.


I’m working on paintings (in the research stage at present) and Christopher is making a graphic novel about our experience during the residency itself, a sort of snapshot of the creative process.


We’ve been here for nearly two weeks–the time has gone so quickly!–but we’re here through the end of April, so there’s still a good amount of time left in which to learn, see, and make, and to enjoy the place.
