Just heard news that I have been elected to receive Sweden´s biggest work grant for sculptors; The Bohusläns Stone Scholarship at KKV-B.
KKV-B is supported by Västra Götalandsregionen, Statens kulturråd, Fyrbodal, Munkedals, Sotenäs, Stenungsunds, Strömstads och Tanums, local communities and a variety of specialist businesses in the vicinity.
Bohusläns is a distinctive, beautiful location, strongly connected with the traditional Swedish stone industry; where international cultural exchange is highly valued.
