Annie Wilkinson about her stay at ARNA 2017
"I was fortunate enough to have my first ever artist residency take place at ARNA. With Cartography as the theme and with my background as an illustrator of children’s books, I knew I wanted to make a treasure map for the young people visiting the Avian Kingdom. I found so many details in the beauty of the countryside, as well as in it’s history, that the story for the treasure map almost wrote itself. Visiting Sweden for the first time ever was also an experience I won’t forget!"
