In May 2014, Cherise Ward undertook a residency at Fresh Milk for a month developing her illustrations and puppet making. We are pleased to share the good news that Cherise has just begun a postgraduate program at Falmouth University in England where she will spend the next year in their MA Illustration program. Read more below from Cherise:
I made the decision to study MA Illustration: Authorial Practice at Falmouth University because I wanted a different experience than that of studying in New York City, which was where I got my undergraduate degree at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. Falmouth university is located in Cornwall, England and I am attracted to the diverse, one year, Illustration programme. This is my first time in England, and I’m looking forward to doing a lot of exploring and experimenting, expanding on ideas I developed during my residency at Fresh Milk, as well as new ideas inspired by this new environment. So far, I have experienced orientation trips to Eden Project as well as St.Ives, explored the beautiful little shops in Falmouth town and seen the beach on both a clear day and a heavily foggy day. I’m excited to get started and for what this coming year will bring.
