In September 2017 I was invited on a residency to Guangxi Province in south-west China.I am really grateful to the Arts Council for backing this adventure and to Guangxi Art Institute for inviting and supporting me.During my time there, I travelled with a Chinese and Taiwanese artist into the countryside of Guangxi Province  as well as spending time at the Art School of Guangxi Province, doing a teaching residency. I then spent a week in Beijing, doing research and development for my practice, exploring historical and contemporary practice in ink and watercolour on paper and meeting with galleries and artists.
