Hannah Buddig

Hannah Buddig is studying Studio Art and Art History at DePauw University, and will be graduating in May of 2015. I am a painter, who is outgoing, driven, and optimistic. My personality is reflected in my work. I attended Interlochen Center for the Arts for two summers, before attending DePauw University. Interlochen has opened my eyes into the beauty of painting. My artistic practice includes a fast pace process, which keeps my attention. I enjoy having the ability to loose control when I paint. I’m interested in collaboration with other mediums, as well as constructing a conversation with others. I received the Efoymson Arts Internship through DePauw for the next academic year, and I plan to continue my art practice. I embrace the unpredictable path of being an artist.
