The City of Shoreline Public Art Program is delighted to announce the second of four artist residencies occurring at the Art Cottage at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park, each two months in duration and experimenting with materials, methods, and the creative process.

For June, July, and the first week of August please visit Francesca Udeschini on Saturdays between 1 and 5pm to watch or create art-making (social distancing protocol with masks) along the themes of her residency, using invasive plants to create ink and paper.

Francesca Udeschini is a sculptor, photographer, printmaker, and scientific illustrator living in Seattle, Washington. She received a BFA in Visual Arts at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze, where she studied oil painting and fresco techniques.

After completing her BFA, she was awarded a 9-month residency in the city of Bienno, Italy. There, she was commissioned to create a permanent installation of portraits of local townspeople in the city’s Historic Mill Museum.
