Hello! I am looking to raise some capital in order to participate on an artists residency programme this summer in Lisbon, Portugal.

New stretch target

Dear friends,

I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be off to Lisbon at the start of April for an artists residency programme on which I won a place out of 439 entries for a project proposal that will involve working with local communities and other artists in making a new and vibrant body of work that explores the cultural, social and historical aspects of Lisbon.

Typically, these opportunities, although highly competitive, are rarely fully funded and so I am looking to raise some of the capital needed here in order to accept the invitation and see my project through to completion.

All of the money raised will go towards living expenses, travel and material costs for the duration of the residency. 

I’m very excited to be taking part in my first residency and am looking forward to this great opportunity to  develop my practice in a new studio environment and to make some colourful and vibrant wallpaper based work alongside some gargantuan woodblock prints, full of movement and light.

I would like to thank you all for your support now and in the past and I hope that one or all of the following rewards appeal to you in seeing this artist off on the next stage of his journey.



This project offers rewards in return for your donation.

£10 or more

Raffle and goodbye to Soho party

I am putting a selection of prints from the archive into a prize draw to be announced on Thursday 22nd March at a leaving drinks party that I'll be hosting at one of my favourite old Soho haunts. This reward automatically enters you into the raffle draw. Invitations to the party will follow shortly and if you are able to make it you can expect Portuguese inspired cocktails, tarts, music and readings from some very talented friends and cohorts.

£10 or more

Postcard from Portugal

A personal message on a hand printed postcard updating you on the triumphs and tribulations of the studio, plus a few cryptic details of what's happening at night. Part of my degree was in creative writing so here's some double bang for your buck. Who wouldn't want a hand written note in the post from an old friend when they least expect it?

£30 or more

Limited Edition Print

One of the aims of this residency is to produce a body of new work full of light and colour reflecting the social, historical and cultural aspects of Lisbon. This new work will emerge towards the end of my stay and I would like to send you a limited edition colour print consolidating an aspect of my experience.

£40 or more

All of the above

This is the equivalent of a Fortnum's Hamper from Tom Maryniak Print Works: The Postcard from Portugal, a limited edition print and a raffle ticket with the chance to win a print from the archive.
