Plunging (literally) into my first (short, but oh so sweet) artist residency in the breathtaking Trélex, Switzerland.  It’s taken many years to take myself seriously as an artist, from taking a complete hiatus creatively, to finding my way back slowly through theory, filmmaking, conversation and (thank god for) creative friends.  Actually applying for and going on a residency is bigger still and although it’s still a challenge to feel comfortable describing myself in those terms – ‘artist’, ‘filmmaker’ – more and more these days I settle into the idea.
