Sean is a fifth year in the CSULB Fine Arts Metals Program. She graduates this year. She’s originally from Los Angeles, but has resided in Ling Beach since attending CSULB. She enjoys cooking and eating what she cooks. She is the youngest (23 years old) of two older brothers (31 and 28 years old). When she first came to CSULB she had stated herself a creative writing major in poetry, but got into studio art. From there she branched into handling metals.

Sean’s exhibit is designed around using coppers and silvers. The pieces are smooth to the touch because they’re designed to wear as jewelry. Sean demonstrated how her pieces can be worn by wearing a necklace she designed. The pieces are simple, and I found some pieces sexual in nature.

Sean has a preference over using silver because it’s a precious metal and it’s easier to shape. Her art has no directed goal, but she enjoys making art she doesn’t like. She likes experimental art, but her art is also inspired by her current emotions.

I liked Sean’s art and how she aims for experimental art, versus a designed purpose. I feel the experience is different when you observe experimental art because that art is driven by emotions versus a vision.

Est. 1993 I am a senior at CSU Long Beach wrapping up my final semester. A great amount of my time is dedicated to my career at Vans. I can genuinely say I love the company I work for and everything they represent. I'm a dog person. Cats are overrated, although I have three felines. My heart is taken by a little dachshund named Brawtney. I have two family dogs I also have a soft spot for- a German shepherd, Kekoa, and a beagle, Levi. I'm the type of person who will show up to a party and hang out with the host's dogs all night- and if anyone asks, "oh, that party was lit". I love the outdoors, and being indoors is a punishment, but adventures are no fun unless you have someone to share it with!.. So I value the people in my life greatly. I am a hula dancer of 17+years. I'm not that great in comparison to my beautiful hula sister who I share the stage with, but I love traveling and competing with them. Excited to soak up my last semester here at The Beach!
