Greetings and salutations! Bea is my name and story editor is my game here at The Expressionist. Everyone and everything has a story. I like to think of self-expression as a way of telling our stories in order to understand each other and art as a wonderfully universal way of doing so. I am a writer, guitarist, food-lover and traveller. I’m here at Loyola as an international student exploring Chicago and studying Communications. I look forward to embarking on this journey with The Expressionist!
Hi all! I’m Marisa and I’m the visual editor for The Expressionist! I’m a Digital Media major and history minor (hoping to add an English major as well) at Loyola. I express myself through writing stories, filming/editing videos, and doodling. Art in all its forms, from paintings to music, has always been a major influence in my life. Personally, I believe expression through art gives us a way to understand our world and connect to others in ways other medias cannot, and I can’t wait to explore this with The Expressionist!
Hey! My name is Grace and I am the researcher for The Expressionist! I’ll also be one who’ll most likely be answering any e-mails and serve as the primary contact for the blog. I am an advertising and public relations and history double major at LUC. I express myself through scribbling in my journal and painting. For me, expression offers a way for me to digest the world around me. Art in all its forms has that power and I can’t wait to find out where The Expressionist takes us!
Hi! My name is Priyanka and I am the audience engagement and ideas coordinator at The Expressionist. I’m a Public Relations major with minors in Marketing and Political Science at Loyola University. My inquisitive nature requires me to be “in-the-know,” so to fulfill that I’m constantly on my phone reading updates on social media sites or the news. Expressing myself… How do I do that? Well, if I’m running from one thing to the next, I love listening to music and I love art, especially the kind that represents various cultures. I’m excited to be working with these wonderful ladies on The Expressionist!
Hey all! I’m Ola and I’m the other story editor as well as the head photographer here at The Expressionist. I’m a Communications and International Studies double major, with a minor in Italian (perché no?) at Loyola. How do I express myself? Whether it’s being the star vocalist headlining in my shower or trying to capture a moment in time with the click of my DSLR, I express myself through some form of art. In the art movement itself, Expressionists sought to depict subjective reality, to find the human response to whatever was happening in their world, and I believe art is the perfect way to do that! I’m psyched to see where our work takes us!
