Kilbywood Residency

A few weekends ago I wrapped up one of the most life-giving weekends I've spent anywhere. Kilbywood Cabin is a hilltop haven situated on the outer edges of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Marion, North Carolina. In exchange for a weekend stay, artists and musicians and thinkers and writers can create work to leave behind at the cabin. My dear friend and adventure buddy Emma came with me and documented the residency in Polaroids and some of the gorgeous photos down below. You can find more of her work here on her website + on her Instagram

I had such a good time getting out different paints and playing with more parapet shapes and patterns. I brought along my film camera and Emma's Polaroid and found some fun corners to snap throughout the cabin. I made more art of different kinds in this short weekend than in the week prior, so I definitely have only good things to say about this short-term residency format. I'm so excited for the next one! (if you have any to recommend, send em ova)


Below are a few more of my favorites from the weekend:
