I arrived at Highgreen Manor in Tarset, Northumberland over Easter to begin a 6 month residency as part of the Visual Art in Rural Communities (VARC) programme. I’m living in a converted Dovecote and get to work in a amazing studio space. Its beautiful if a little moist up here. I’ve set up the studio with OS maps across the walls to help plan the border walk I’m going to do. Here are a few pictures from my first week including a trip to Kielder Forest and Hareshaw Linn, a waterfall near Bellingham.
