For this week, an artist named Yireh Elaine Kawak displayed her artwork in the Gatov-West Gallery. She is currently finishing up her Bachelors of Drawing and Painting.
Elaine is mostly inspired through what she sees near her home in Fullerton. She said she lives on a hill and from there she is able to view all the green pastures, trees, and all of what comes to nature. She usually goes to her back yard and from there she becomes inspired from what she sees. There are times when she just goes in her studio and paints from memory, intuition, and observation. The painting above is called “Home”. She mention that it is very symbolic to her family. It took her about one month and half to complete. After she graduates from CSULB, she wants to take a break and just travel as well as build up her portfolio.
