Miriam Lorentzen

After working in the world of photography as a photo editor, and producer, I traded in my camera for my first true creative passion: painting.

Every painting that I make is a different reflection of myself, which I hope evokes an emotion in observers that lets them discover a part of me or a bit of themselves. 

My process employs the notion of play and a balance between conscious and subconscious—images that float, creep, spin and hang with the ability to be interpreted from any angle.

My current work is a mixed media of acrylic painting. 

Currently, I live in San Diego after relocating from New York. I have a BFA from Montclair University in Montclair  NJ, and I have an Associate Degree in Photography from School Of Visual Arts, New York City. I am presently a student at UCSD where I am working towards a certificate in Arts and Humanity.

 My paintings have been shown at exhibitions in the 30th Street Gallery in San Diego.
