We are an artist run organisation, started in Summer 2018, open to all artists of every race and cultural background without any prejudiced or discrimination. Our aim is to help and support our artists to the best of our abilities through strong communication and adapting to each individuals needs. We will promote artists through our website and social media including any other form we find necessary, helping to form connections where we can (in the local and wider artist community). By providing time and space, sharing skills and knowledge, we hope to enhance the professional development of both our permanent and visiting artists. We will also strive to improve and develop ourselves through our artists and the Res Artis network, being open to suggestions that may help all parties in the future.


The artistic getaway without having to leave your house, a place of timeless harmony. 
A place where you can find yourself again. An online platform that offers a great solution using online resources. Artists are invited to deepen their artistic development and learn to use the advantages of art on an online platform. A platform that connects artists with each other, a community which is looking for alternative ways of communicating about art. Paradise is designed for artists who have daily obligations such as a job, a family or who choose not to travel to distanced places. It gives voice to a large group and shares this with a wider audience. It is a safe place to experiment and create.

Cel del Nord

We give you a distraction-free, and inspiration-rich environment to do extraordinary creative work. Artists, writers and musicians stay here to make use of the studio and enjoy a peaceful escape in the vast countryside, which unravels from our doorstep. The two go hand-in-hand: the peaceful escape inevitably inspires whatever takes place in the studio, or at the writers’ desk. We strongly support creatives who also have \'day jobs\' or other committments and encourage them to use their time with us to unblock projects that have otherwise been waylaid by everyday life.
