Aspen Barbro is a fourth-year undergraduate student at the University of Cincinnati with a background in Fine Arts. As an artist at the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) she is constantly being pushed to expand her ever-evolving practice. For the duration of her
college career, she's been exploring topics such as gender performance/ femininity, suburbia and domesticity, relationships, and the importance of language.
Conceptually, she enjoys challenging what a print is, or could be.
She has been a printmaker for over 6 years and primarily works as a screen printer, but has experience in intaglio as well.
Sydnie is a proud Akron native who has been a working artist in New York City for the last 5 years. As a working artist, Sydnie has worked in fashion photography- shooting New York Fashion Week and promotional work for brands with features in Italian Vogue and Topsafe London. She has spent time photographing behind the scene for music videos, movies, and documentaries. Sydnie also works behind the scenes on shoots for major fashion brands such as Miu Miu and Gypsy Sport.
When not taking photos, she also produces The Dawn Lombardi Show with her long-time friend and Akron native, Sam Puglia. The wacky variety show featured artists such as Princess Nokia, Kembra Pfahler, Casey Spooner, and Show Me The Body just to name a few.
In her spare time, Sydnie works on painting, drawing, and printmaking. She finds inspiration from the people around her, her experiences from her short 23 years on earth, and the freedom that comes with putting a thought down on paper.
