Letting Go (2014)

Sometimes you wear a mask for so long that it becomes your face, but this drawing represents a great change in my life. I am moving on to a new place but also to a new level of introspection and growth, as I journey to become the full me. This is my release and renewal. The mask is coming off.

"Grandfather" (2014)
Painted with watercolors, in the same sketchbook as this piece. Painting of my recently-deceased grandfather, whom I called “HaHa,” short for his name, Harold. He was a kind, joyful man who loved to tell jokes, eat Southern food, and tell stories. He was a WWII veteran and died at 87 years old. Rest in peace, HaHa.

"These Bones" watercolor sketch (2014)
Did this a few months ago and posted via Instagram, but wanted to scan the full image. Just a quick doodle. First painting I did after completing my film and wanted a warm up. Did this as a gift for my mom in a sketchbook I made for her. If you’re interested in purchasing a sketchbook like this, you can find them in my Etsy shop here: link

Handmade Books (2014)

first: Coptic stitch book, 7 3/4” by 7 3/4”, 72
second: Japanese rice paper book w/ hemp leaf stitching, 5” wide by 5 5/8” tall, 24 pages
third: hardbound book, 6” wide by 7 7/8” tall, 72 pages

Three books I made in my bookbinding class this past semester. The large Coptic stitch book is a personal sketchbook, not unlike the ones available in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SinRibbon?section_id=15464455&ref=shopsection_leftnav_4 The paper is perfect for watercolor painting. Already made a couple paintings in my mom’s sketchbook.

The third book is one I plan to turn into a personal journal of spirituality, like my own holy book for my beliefs. Had to choose to black pages naturally.

BFA Thesis Show (photos by Billy Golden)

Finally uploading photos of gallery show for my film “Prelude”. The exhibition ran from March 24th through the 28th for Final Friday. It was projected bright and large on a wall with rows of seats for viewers. Really enjoyed having the opportunity to see my film from a projector. Special thanks for Steph Landry for making that happen!

Currently uploading each segment of the film individually and including more information about the characters and their stories. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yw1nU3rDGLg&list=PLiV-2k12iU30BoPbdMRV9qrZWTQN1Tj8m
