Resident Artist Programme
The Sidney Nolan Trust has been a provider of Artist-in-Residence opportunities for more than two decades and is delighted to continue to provide a unique space and working environment for contemporary artists to develop their practice.
The latest iteration is the Resident Artist Programme which provides artists with a full 12-months to work at the Sidney Nolan Trust and to develop a collaborative working relationship with the staff, with other artists and users of The Rodd.
Following an open call, we are delighted to announce the two artists taking part in our 2023 Resident Artist Programme.
Daisy’s work is currently focussed on drawing from different vistas of experience, revealing a fragmentary view of her journey. She recently undertook a two-week residency in the 15th -Century village of Agios Ioannis, Crete, where she made drawings of the ‘residue of activity’ found in the deserted houses and structures.
Daisy studied Fine Art at Bath Spa University, later attended the Royal Drawing School and is currently undertaking an MA in Art Therapy at Chester University. She is Subject Leader of Photography and Teacher of Fine Art at Hereford Sixth Form College.
