Bri Joy is an OC Coast transfer, she is majoring in screen printing. Screen Sprinting is a 3 year old program at LB state and she’s been in it all 3 years, she is graduating in this May with her BFA degree in the School of Art’s Printmaking Program. Bri seemed like a very interesting and cool girl.

She is from Modjeska Canyon, California, which is a small town in the Santa Ana mountains, which has limited cell phone service, the city also has a very small population. Bri says she comes from a town where everyone knows each other (which she loved about it) She said her K- 6 Elementary School had 100 kids in the whole school and it was really hard for her to adjust. She said coming from the wilderness it was a culture shock for her moving to the OC at such an old age. Her hobbies are surfing, snowboarding, hiking and skating. Bri’s full name is Briana. She wants to make her full website after she graduates. Her ideas are her merging her past and present. Trying to bring both worlds together.

Bfk is the type of Paper she uses, she usually gets 2 rolls of them when she starts a project. Her screen printing works in different ways, she sometimes uses an aluminum utensil type of frame.  The piece she is most proud of is “Circumvent”, she thinks the line consistency and how close the lines creates a type of feel to her piece and looks like a bit of grey. She wants to start using grey more in her art because grey line structure with white and black can really play with the human eye.art 1art2
