I was honoured today to present the permanent installation of my artwork to the UWI Cave Hill Credit Union. The work was commission by the credit union for their 30th anniversary. In 2012 I wanted to continue on as an MFA candidate and was applying to schools across California. I was informed of a new scholarship opportunity offered by my credit union University of the West Indies Cave Hill Credit Union. Since I had already taken out many undergraduate loans, and was working three part time jobs, I jumped at the chance to have monetary assitance for my MFA programme. Suffice it to say I was ecstatic when I was chosen as the recipient of this wonderful postgraduate scholarship.
For the last few months I worked on four diptychs of flowers native to the island. Pride of Barbados (Caesalpinia pulcherrima), and Flamboyant (Delonix regia). I used cyanotype and ink and watercolour and I have actualy expanded the series recently. The full (and expanding) series can be seen here.
