“I’ve ordered a few books about home over the past year […] But none brought me more joy than a slim book […] Artists in Residence, written by Melissa Wyse and illustrated by Kate Lewis.” -Vanity Fair

This book invites you inside some of the most creative and inspiring homes of all time. For the 17 artists profiled here, a house or an apartment is not simply a place to eat and sleep; they transform everyday spaces into dynamic reflections of their individual artistic passions.
