I am a 23-year-old visual artist and freelance illustrator working out of Huntington Beach, California. Art has been my most natural form of expression and self-exploration throughout the entirety of my life. I am now pushing my skills to an advanced level through studio-art classes and the illustration program at Orange Coast College as well as personal endeavors into more fields of art not yet offered at my school, expanding not only my technical skill set and experience but also my artistic perspective and conceptual power. Ink, acrylic, water color, sculpture, graphite, charcoal, collage, pastel, digital, and screen prints are all mediums I currently work in and explore, the list grows larger as I continue to grow.
My renderings often delve into musings of duality and conceptualizing the subconscious shadow of self, expressed through tedious detail and expressive color. I strive to inspire a dualistic impact upon people with my art; inspiring a sense of awe as well as an uneasiness paralleled to facing a life-changing situation that forces the observer into a self-reflective state of mind. It is my belief that the acknowledgement of both a limited subjective reality and the ineffable nature of the universe are key to realizing our potential as individuals and a collective species. My current goal is to push more people towards self realizations pertaining to life, death, consciousness, and all things silly.
I am artist living in Orange County. For the past two years I have been attending OCC to develop myself as an illustrator. As a child I have always been fascinated by creating art. There are different mediums I lam fond of using in my artwork. Most of it consists of graphite pencils, colored pencils, ink, and watercolor, which is my favorite painting medium that I enjoy playing around with and letting the colors move freely along the page.
I take pleasure in working with different styles to help me further develop my own personal style. I am inspired by artist such as Camille Rose Garcia, Tad Carpenter, and Emma Sancartier. I am intrigued by how I can visually communicate stories and emotions with an audience through a character’s facial expression, body language and symbols.
human, man. in terms of physical and mental development I am an adult. born and raised by immigrant parents, santa ana, california remains to be my dwelling. vast population, mass communication, corners of solice, shades of love and hate taints my touch to life. I am the culmination, expreince, and interaction of you and your past and future peers to the present moment and last word. love, fear, anger, hate, mud, oil and tears is my media to form and shape TRUTH.
I am an artist currently residing in Huntington Beach. I am working towards a degree in art and currently attend Orange Coast College as an Art/Illustration major. I have worked in many medias, but I prefer graphite or ball point pen.
My art is mostly personal and is inspired by philosophes that I have adopted and applied to personal experiences. My art style is considered expressionistic even though I strive for a more realistic feel. When working with clients I endeavor to meet their specifications and adapt when there is little clarity on a certain idea. My current focus in my drawings is to better understand the physiology of the human body so that I may apply to future works.
My name is Lisa Freidl Grant. I am a museum professional living in Southern California. I have 18 years experience in Holocaust-themed museums, exhibit creation, oral history, publications and law. My work is concept driven and based on a strong foundation of content research. On an assigned project, my concept is clearly defined and I execute meticulous research. I then determine the media and style I will use to actualize the concepts within the set parameters. My preferred audience is the public sphere. My personal style is confrontational, while still educational.
My cultural and religious education in Judaism promotes the duty of Tikkun Olam, meaning “Repair the World.” I read The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank when I was eight years old and I knew how my life would be defined. I plan to create a public illumination of The Diary of a Young Girl in a global installation project.

I am a fashion designer and entrepeneur living in Garden Grove. I am current majoring in merchandise product developement at Orange Coast College. This major is similar to fashion design, however it lacksthe pressure to create an entirely original garment but rather take an orginal garment and make it more wearable and affordable for the masses. I have no worked for anyone in this field, although I have sold some of my products. Most of my art is drafted on white paper, pen, and color pencil before I sew it with 100% cotton fabric from local vendors.
I gather most of my concepts from magazines like Elle and Vogue. I most influenced by world cultures, the victorian era, sailor uniforms, and flowers. When designing an outfit for someone, I strive to put together an outfit that is not only appropriate for the occasion but also infused with their personal tastes. My current body of work is to create a complete catalog for my (still in progress) online fashion business.
I am photographer and multimedia artist living in Southern California. Art has been my area of focus for as long as I can remember, but photography has come out being the only method I’ve found that allows to me successfully and comprehensibly communicate. Having taken photography courses throughout high school and college, it has been my central practice for 6 years.
Favorably, I shoot analog using 35mm color, as well as, black and white film while utilizing multiple exposures, an in camera technique, and post-process physical manipulations to construct nebulous and ambiguous settings. All which leaves something similar to the nature of a sentence unfinished or just a fragment of an idea; There’s something to be gathered that isn’t quite specific, but rather relies on the viewer’s interpretation guided by their own life experiences.
My camera has become my third hand that enables me to capture ephemeral instants and embody them; their haziness, while simultaneously expressing the fragility, instability, and eeriness of these moments in human existence. My photos are largely targeted at encompassing a kingdom I wish existed or duplicating dreams and memories, and urging those looking from the outside to do the same. I want to archive my life’s experiences in the world as I see it and in the way I believe it was meant to be seen: ominous, fleeting, and mystifying like the eye of a storm.
