Second Saturday Event July 11: Meet the Artists Joan North and Pat Gaska 10-2.
Digital Artist and Graphic Designer
“My work merges illustration and graphic design together to deliver conventional art through digital design. I believe communication balanced with aesthetics is the most important aspect of art to enable it to speak universally.
Art has always been a necessity for me since I was a child. It was an escape from reality and a medium that brought me to a positive place spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally. Today this is still the case, except now the escape from reality that I create lives in the reality of others. To that end, I feel my work brings others into that same positive place I searched for as a child.
The role of an artist in society comes with great responsibility. A great deal of work ethic and the spirit of continuously creating better, more innovative work, is what drives me as an artist.”
