About the Artist

About the Artist

Teri Brudnak has been drawing and painting since childhood. She grew up in a small town in the high desert in California. Her love of light and color comes from the intense desert landscape of brilliant sunsets and clear starry night skies. She watched her father fly F15 jets for the Air Force. This sparked a life long interest in technology and science fiction.

During her undergraduate studies in Art at Calif State University Long Beach, she encountered inspiring artists in the Jewelry/Metals program. Drawn to the ancient art of Metalsmithing, Teri studied Silversmithing, Jewelry and Bronze Sculpture. Her interest in Art and Technology led to explorations in holography, electronics for jewelry and glass working. As technology became more available to artists, she began to work with early computers to create video and 3D models. Her expertise in digital media has grown to include 3D Fractals and Animation.

Drawing and Painting still remain central to her work—both with traditional media and virtual. She is able to merge her traditional artist’s skills with new electronic media in many innovative ways.

She has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally in galleries and exhibitions in the US, Italy, Korea, Japan and Indonesia.
