Scully Award Exhibition

"The Scully Scholarship, named for Lydia and Raymond Scully of New Orleans, is an annual award given to two art students who demonstrate an aesthetically strong body of work and a professional commitment to the creative practice of visual art." Each student was given a chance to exhibit a small show at the school.

During my time at Loyola, my mother passed away. I was curious about her culture when she was younger. I visually created a small story using her childhood as a theme. Many of the patterns were inspired by embroidery pieces made by my aunt or bracelets that we made together when I was younger.

Role ········· Illustrator, Screenprinter
Medium ······· Screenprint
Produced ····· April 2011


I feel this work is an unfinished story and I would like to come back to it some day. It was my first time screenprinting without oversight and the process of printing was grounding, before I even knew the process of grounding. I enjoyed every minute of this story hopefully to be continued.
