“The prize gave me the opportunity to travel to Paris to visit the Gustave Moreau art gallery/museum and the Musée d’Orsay. I had decided to look at the work of French Symbolist painters from the nineteenth century and to be able to experience the paintings first hand gave me a greater understanding of the artwork and the period; to see the rooms where Moreau dined, slept and worked made me feel closer to the artist. I look at the world differently now, having studied at Essex, and I deeply appreciate the generosity of the Bishop and McKinlay families whose prize helped me gain my degree.”
