Mary Milelzcik has a B.A. degree from Sonoma State University’s School of Expressive Arts, a radical two-year upper division interdisciplinary experimental program where you worked with a mentor, and chose your own path in upper-division. Printmaking and papermaking were her focus. This transformative experience set the path for an interesting career as a mixed media artist and photographer; as the Curator at Highways Performance Space and Gallery in Santa Monica CA for ten years; and as an artist and instructor of papermaking, mixed media encaustic art, and printmaking.
Currently, Mary is experimenting with using pineapple, banana, lemongrass, ginger etc. to make paper, and to add to recycled handmade paper. She gathers local earth pigments and prepares paint for printing. Her artwork has been shown internationally. You can see more of her artwork at www.artsasylum.org.
