Young Bloods Featured Artist
Sista Luna is a Colorado native from Boulder. She received her BA in Studio Art from Colorado College in 2010. She is greatly interested in the processes of making art, which translates to a continuing exploration of mark making in her work. Whether it be pen and ink drawing, monoprinting, charcoal figure drawing, or sculptural work; Sista emphasises the joys, frustrations, and problem solving that drives the process of creation through each medium she utilizes. Each mark is an echo of that moment of creation, captured by the artist’s hand and preserved by the medium she uses. Sista currently lives in Steamboat Springs with her fiance and their adorable puppy, Hazelnut.
