"The Maiden Collection"

Circa February 2023

Artist Statement

My artwork is rooted in what I find aesthetically pleasing in the environment around me. I find pleasure in objects that are odd, curious, dainty, retro, and colorful. It is with these objects that I try to find the humor within them, and illustrate what comes to mind. I use bold lines and colors to do this referencing styles that can be found in old school tattooing techniques and the super graphic ultra modern movement. My medium of choice is a digital program and tablet.

Artist Bio

Lorissa Schaefer was born in Cleveland, Ohio and attended Kent State University receiving a foundational education in visual communication design, and a B.A. in Sociology and Psychology in 2018. She pursued a career in banking and title insurance where she ultimately found the work to be unfulfilling, and decided to become a full time artist in late 2019. She has developed a loyal following on dedicated social media accounts, and is currently trying to establish a presence in her local arts community. She can be found attending local artisan craft markets and fairs.
