Artist alum excited by NSCC projects
Bee Stanton is pouring her heart into her latest work, which makes sense given her NSCC connection.
"I've come to realize the impact that NSCC has on this province," says the two-time NSCC grad (Applied Communication Arts, Annapolis Valley Campus, Class of 2008; Graphic Design, Waterfront Campus, Class of 2009).
"It means a lot to me to be a part of something like NSCC because we’re literally building the future for Nova Scotia," says Bee. "It's hard not to be proud."
The highly regarded artist and illustrator has been working on an exciting new design for NSCC Alumni's NSCC is Me awareness campaign, and on a large-scale project to recognize the many donors to Make Way – The Campaign for NSCC.
Expressing her style
"The work I've done with NSCC is Me has been so much fun – they wanted to see my style expressed quite strongly," says Bee.
Meanwhile, the Make Way recognition project involves 14 large acrylic-on-canvas paintings, unique artworks capturing the reciprocal impact of NSCC campuses and adjacent communities around Nova Scotia.
"It's a bit scary because it's a huge endeavour and I don't do this type of painting very often," says Bee, who grew up in Digby and now lives in Milford.
That said, her impressive client roster has included Estee Lauder, East Coast Lifestyle, Teen Vogue and Steinhart Distillery.
"It's amazing to have this opportunity to use my skills to build pride for the College and thank people who feel as strongly about NSCC as I do, and have been inspired to support students."
