How are you going to celebrate your win?

I am going to share the good news and go out with family.

What kind of work are you excited to make next?

I'm excited to keep exploring the concept of memory and time through repetition of the figure, while also dissolving it into a background. I'm hoping to further push that and shift towards the idea of abstraction through multiple representational images that are overlaid through the medium of paint. 

What made you choose to come to MCAD?

I decided on MCAD because of its facilities and location. I was most excited about the painting studio and the idea of being able to have access to the 3D Shop to make everything I would need in my practice. Also seeing student work from MCAD made me want to achieve the same level of growth in my own work. 

Favorite thing about college life (so far)?

My favorite thing about college life so far has been the amount of work that I have been able to create. Being surrounded by so many other amazing artists has really made me want to create as much as possible.
