Testimonials

“Our days were filled with biking, sight seeing, art and most importantly, the Kingsbrae Gardens. The gardens were a bottomless source of beauty and inspiration. It was greatly freeing to just be able to work without having to worry about the mundane realities of everyday life. I could ensconce myself in my studio space and just let things flow. In all, I completed 17 new pieces in 28 days, a personal record for me. Each Saturday we would open our studios to the public and another wonderful experience occurred, as I was able to meet people from all over the east coast of Canada and the United States. Some of them were people who just enjoyed art and were a pleasure to meet. Others were connoisseurs, people who collect beautiful works of art from around the world, and were sitting in my studio, looking at my work. Still others were artists themselves, and these were the visits I cherished the most, as they almost always had words of wisdom that I could apply to my work.” – Michaela Hoppe

“For me, KIRA started the inspiration for a quite significant shift in perspective. The KIRA residency experience can be profound. Inspirations come from trips to rocky beaches, time in the peaceful gardens, brilliant dinner conversations with amazing people, and inspiring life lessons learned from spending time with other artists. You will have days of full immersion in a lovely studio of your own, with great meals and beautiful private accommodations, plus wonderful things to see and do, right within walking distance. I could not have asked for anything more perfect! This is a world-class residency program, still quite new, already developing an amazing reputation. It is truly a unique opportunity.” – Susan Neilson

“This last month that began in a state of overwhelming bliss is ending in a comfortable state of contemplation and renewed sense of creativity. My adventure in St. Andrews may feel like it is over, but in fact it is just the beginning. My connection to this place lives on. We gathered each night for dinner promptly at 6pm. We ate, we laughed, we talked, I learned so much from these amazing people. I am a better person because of them and a better artist because of KIRA. It’s is such an amazing program for artists. I can not over emphasis this enough.” – Kristofer Parley
