The Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation’s Career Development programs support of the creative growth of New Brunswick artists. It is a double pleasure to award the 2022 Maurice Henri Merit Bursary to Lucia Choulakian and to honor the many contributions of Maurice Henri during his tenure as a Director of the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation. This bursary is a mark of respect for Henri’s leadership and dedication to the power of creativity in life.
Ms. Choulakian, like Mr. Henri, harnesses the power of photography to illuminate the human condition. Her mastery of technicalities allows her to create highly provocative and deeply nuanced work.
