Lavinia Winter


This woman artist under the age of forty works on a project that honours the memory of Lavinia Winter and reflects the nature – open, embracing, creative, and free-spirited. Applicants can be working in any art medium, should have a particular creative project in mind, and should be in the early stage of their creative ‘careers’. Selection will be made on the nature of an applicant’s proposed project and the degree to which they will benefit from having the space and time to focus on a project of importance to them.
