Adriana Barrios, a graduate student, is currently working towards her Master of Fine Arts at the University of Wisconsin, with an emphasis in printmaking and an environmental message embedded in her work.

Born and raised in San Diego, the artist has been around the coast much of her life and is now revisiting the environment in her latest work.

Her experience has not been limited to one area of the world. Barrios earned her undergraduate degree at the University of Texas-San Antonio in 2009 and in 2015, she spent seven months abroad participating in a residency program in Florence, Italy.

Now at UW, Barrios is excited to have the opportunity to not only work with other artists and professors but to also explore various mediums outside of printmaking.
