Biography





Beca Piascik is a Hand Papermaker who applies innovative techniques in making and manipulating handmade paper sheets along with paper pulps to create “pulp paintings”, three dimensional sculpture, and other unique works.  It is important to note that pulp paintings are not made simply by applying paints to handmade paper surfaces.   The images and color palettes are achieved by melding together the various handmade paper sheets and paper pulps themselves so that they become a single structure of handmade paper after fully drying.  
 
Her work is inspired by the core elements, powerful dynamics and specific events occurring in nature, exploring how such natural phenomena impact human social relationships.  
 
Beca lives in Southern California but is bicoastal in her art practice.  Currently she is working primarily in Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties, but she remains active “back East” in Boston, MA and upstate New York.  
 
Beca is an active member of the North American Hand Papermakers, National Art Education Association, Ojai Art Center in Ojai, CA, The Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center, Carpinteria, CA, the Buenaventura Art Association in Ventura, CA, and Albany Center Gallery in Albany, NY.
 
Her works have won prestigious awards and are included in exhibitions across the US.  
Beca earned her BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in Boston MA ([email protected]).  She was the full time college intern at Studio Channel Islands in Camarillo, CA during Summer 2018 and taught hand papermaking and ceramics in SCI Summer Camp each year through 2020.  In addition to her growing studio practice, Beca also shares her skills and love of art with others through workshops for art lovers of all ages and school related enrichment programs.
