An Arts Guide for San Francisco's Dogpatch District
Sirima Sataman (born Bangkok, Thailand) studied sculpture, printmaking and fiber arts at the Claremont Colleges, the American University in Rome, Italy and Temple/Tyler University in Rome, Italy.
She has spent past several years crisscrossing contintents and wandering up and down coast of California, from Santa Cruz to rural Davenport to urban San Francisco. She sees beauty, culture, and history in the most mundane landscapes. Much of her imagery tries to capture the ephemeral and forgotten beauty in our everyday landscape. Her work often has poetic narrative and tends to be either heroic or intimate in scale to elict an emotional response from the viewer. Her primary training in sculpture is reflected in this fascination with texture, form, and scale.
She currently serves on the Board of the California Society of Printmakers as Treasurer and serves as an advisor to Go Inspire Go (http://www.goinspirego.com/.) She has taught workshops, given artist lectures, and demonstrations for the University of California Santa Cruz Extension, Academy of Art University, and various educational organizations.
