I was the BSoA Bursary Award recipient in 2006. Receiving this bursary was of such great assistance as I was about to begin my Masters in Fine Art degree at Parsons, the New School for Design in New York City. The support of the Bermuda Society of Arts through this award was not only financial, but also a sign of faith that the organization had in my artistic ability, which proved invaluable. I went on to graduate with an MFA degree with honours in 2008 and have since had a number of artistic successes both in Bermuda and in New York. I wish the new recipient the best of luck in their creative endeavors and hope the BSoA continues this great program, as it is very important to the future of Bermuda’s artistic community.
