Congratulations to the selected artists!


Please don’t be disheartened by this choice. I am no art critic. I simply loved their proposals and they were able to dedicate the most time to the residency.


I plan to offer a ‘one month’ residencies every year so do stay tuned and keep in touch!





This is an open call for artists of any background, who want to develop a creative project in London, England, this Summer - whether that be paintings, sculpture or installation. This is a residency for a 15²m studio in Central London. Please note, this residency is for a FREE studio but with no accommodation.


I am offering 6 'one month’ residencies this Summer for:

-Two artists for the whole of June each with a 15²m studio (From the 1st to the 30th of June)  

-Two artists for the whole of July each with a 15²m studio (From the 1st to the 31st of July)  

-Two artists for the whole of August each with a 15²m studio (From the 1st to the 31st of August)  


Each artist will also receive a one-on-one tutorial with both:

-Rosalind Davis, artist, curator and author of 'What They Didn't Teach You In Art School'


-Danny Lamb, Assistant Director of Rod Barton


The residency will begin on the 1st of each month. I’ll be here on the 1st to welcome the selected artists and show them around the building and introduce them to a few friendly faces. The studio is based in the heart of London, at The Koppel Project Hive, just minutes from Chancery Lane and Farringdon tube stations.  


Each artist will have one quarter of this room
