Agathe de Bailliencourt is the first painter to be named Sabhal Mòr Ostaig UHI’s Artist in Residence. Part of the Jon Schueler Residency Programme, the residency is located on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, a spectacular setting overlooking The Sound of Sleat; the place which inspired Schueler as an artist.

A unique international partnership between Sabhal Mòr Ostaig UHI and the Jon Schueler Charitable Trust, the residency is awarded to artists with a particular interest in landscape and the environment. For the Scholarship, Agathe plans to produce a new series of site-specfic ‘water-colour paintings’ which reference Schueler’s work and respond to the unique environs.
