Lucy Moir

Australian Performer & Writer

Lucy Moir performs on stage and screen, with credits including ‘The Dressmaker’, ‘Lion’, ‘That’s Not Me’ and ‘Maybe Tomorrow’. She is also a playwright and the focal-point of her residency was to develop her play, ‘Write Loud and Clear About What Hurts’, into a mini-series. The play, which focuses on the developing relationship of a therapist and her demanding patient, was first performed by Lucy and Debra Lawrance at the Melbourne International Fringe Festival in 2018 to glowing reviews.

Martin Seneviratne

Australian Doctor & Writer

Though Martin Seneviratne spends his working life as a research scientist at Google Health in London, building algorithms and writing papers that try to push the boundary of what is possible with AI, he also likes to find creative outlets, mainly through writing. He predominantly writes fiction and poetry, typically inspired by medical experiences or the ethical dilemmas of artificial intelligence. He is currently writing a middle-grade fiction series, ‘Ancient Geeks’ in collaboration with his wife, Krystal Sutherland, who was Writer-in-Residence simultaneously.

Celie Byrne

Artiste écossais

Celie Byrne is a Fine Art Painter, whose work incorporates characterful portraits, giant murals and installation-based art. Celie’s portrait of her son ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ was selected for the BP Portrait Award Exhibition in 2011 and this led to her being invited to contribute her voice and lyrics to ‘The Grand Gestures’ (see link below). Celie’s short residency gave her the opportunity to step away from her daily obligations and to take a moment to reflect on her ongoing practice.

Kate Corroon Skakel

Artiste américain

Multimedia artist, Kate Corroon Skakel came to Studio Faire from Brooklyn, NY, with a focused goal, to create several site specific installations plus full body cyanotypes and to exhibit these at the property towards the end of her 4-week residency. Unfortunately her residency was cut short by the Coronavirus Pandemic and she was unable to complete all planned works. However, she developed multiple ideas and successfully completed one installation, ‘Murmurations’, consisting of a video projection onto small pieces of fabric which mimicked the coordinated movement of birds.

Krystal Sutherland

Australian Writer

Krystal Sutherland’s first novel, ‘Our Chemical Hearts’, was published in over 20 countries. Amazon Studios produced the film adaptation and Krystal served as an executive producer on the project. She has subsequently become interested in developing her screenwriting skills so she can adapt her own work from book to screen and it was this that she focused on at Studio Faire, telling us that she’d had a real breakthrough moment during her residency! Her third novel, ‘House of Hollow’, will be published by Penguin in 2021.
