Samira Gdisis is a printmaker, interdisciplinary artist, community builder, and curator from Racine, Wisconsin. She makes art as a means of documenting life around her or the history of the people in her life. Color, flora, fashion, and figures fill her work. The interplay of disciplines and media permit her to consider the powerful potential interaction of techniques, texture, and color that may mimic or counter life often in abstract land or seascapes. Her current Blue Moon collection is inspired by the light and color of early mornings, open skies, long ambles, and the voyages of her imagination. Each piece shares emotion, color, and composition in a way that makes a viewer ponder or remember. Samira holds Bachelor degrees in cognitive psychology, interdisciplinary art, and printmaking with a minor in arts management. She also earned a Master’s of Art degree in museum studies from Johns Hopkins University.
