According to belief, talented people are talented in everything. And Paula Swisher, American artist, professor at the University of Kutstauna, Pennsylvania just proves this.
In fact, she combines two worlds – the creative and the technical. The hand-drawn mark, grid-based design, and infographics are all things that keep her excited. Her colorful pencil and gouache drawings of beautiful birds on found paper – technical drawings, diagrams, old book pages, mails are impressive. According to Paula Swisher herself, she creates “visual metaphors”. Swisher teaches Web Design in the Art Department at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. Paula holds an M.F.A. in Painting from Clemson University and a B.A. in Art from Houghton College.
