About the Artist – background
She is an artist who is also a senior, undergrad, majoring in printmaking, and she is
graduating this semester with a BFA. This was her BFA show, she is also a returning
student, as she was out of school for a while.
She is from Costa Mesa, she was a graphic design major, she already has a job that she
likes as a programer in Orange County, therefore she says that she may continue art after
taking a short break, but not as a career, and she says that she will not pursue a masters
degree at the moment.
She has been part of the Orange County Art Fair. She was also part of my printmaking
class this semester, so it was good to see all of her work.
Her interests include listening to music, helping others, giving back, sailing, taking
photos, and printmaking among other things.
Her works include many media like prints, lithographs, some works have many lines, a
couple different colors but mostly black, white and gray, the works are in frames are
shaped mostly squares and rectangles. There are as couple different sizes, some of the
works have nice textures.
Her works are about things like what she gets inspiration from like birds such as ravens,
crows, and other things like nature,pictures, and landscapes like the golden gate bridge.
She also wanted to show the different kinds of printmaking techniques
Synthesis my experience – Her works are all really cool, well done and interesting.
It was cool to see all the cool techniques and processes that she has learned.
As mentioned I had a printmaking class with her, this semester, so it was cool to see all
the kinds of works that can be done, as i didn’t learn many of the techniques that she
knows. It was just a shame that she says that she is not pursuing art as a career,
because she is really good, she also says that her prints are not for sale, as many
think that they should.
In conclusion it was a good conversations. Here are some cool photos
