Eileen Gemborys, drawing & painting

Eileen is from Clarkston, Michigan.   She will be graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing.  Eileen plans on continuing her education in graduate school to receive a Master's Degree. 

Artist's Statement:  I have gained knowledge from all of my professors in the art department while attending SVSU.   Professor Zivich has given me guidance throughout my education to push my ideas further and educate me in many areas of art. Without professor Zivich's lectures during class I would not have explored as many styles of art that I am now familiar with.   Dr. Kelley has been very helpful for improvement of my writing skills and familiarizing me with knowledge from the art history side of studio work.   Professor Hanson has challenged me in ways to improve my work as well as to think more critically about what I have done/am doing with my work.  Without the art department's faculty my artwork would not not be nearly as successful.

David Janssen, Jr., drawing & painting

David is from Cass City, Michigan, and he will be graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Drawing and Painting.  David plans on attending graduate school in the future to obtain his Master's Degree in Painting.

Artist's Statement: I would like to thank all of my professors for their guidance and support throughout the time I have had at SVSU. Being a student in the art department has completely changed my life and my way of seeing everything.  I would like to thank Professor Matthew Zivich for challenging me to think more critically about art and my own creative process; Professor Tom Canale for always being honest with me and keeping me on track in his design classes; Andrea Ondish for showing me better ways to keep track of all my ideas and the things I learned in her ART 480 class are things that I will keep with me throughout all my artistic endeavors; and also Department Chair Hideki Kihata for always having an open door and giving me a lot of suggestions as far as my work and preparation for the future.  I would not trade my time at SVSU for anything.
