Portrait & Invitation

An invitation to artistically capture the joyful spirit and talents of Prof. Carolyn Cooper.

I was invited by the Department of Literatures in English at UWI, Mona of Jamaica to design an invitation that would artistically capture Prof. Carolyn Cooper's joyful spirit and talents. The invitation was for Carolyn's Cooper retirement celebration.
When the invitation printed I received the following touching, rewarded email from the Department.

"A delayed but heartfelt thank you.

Dear Maria,

How do I thank you for the tremendous work you did on such short notice and with such care? I feel like the words "thank you" are utterly insufficient but they are the only words available to me. So thank you once again for your visual-word-power. We were able to set the vibes and celebrate Professor Carolyn Cooper in a way that only your artistic vision could capture. What I am saying is that you were integral to the success of our event because you gave us the initial life that set the creative tone and brought joy to all who were invited and, most importantly, brought a very personal level of significance to our dear friend Carolyn.

On behalf of the Department of Literatures in English, we thank you."
