April Final Friday

This is Nice

Mia Forsberg-Haverkamp

April 26th - May 27th

"The intention behind the artwork I make is to capture the beauty of people and the planet in ways that bring out the child in all of us. I think that the charm and silliness of my artwork is incredibly important to a world struggling to stay above the waves of seriousness in our daily lives. Joy is the best tool we have for combatting fear, and that is my goal!"

Mia Forsberg-Haverkamp is in the last month of her BFA in Illustration and Animation from The University of Kansas. She currently works as an illustrator, running her business "Bean&Art" and teaching illustration at the Lawrence Arts Center. Mia's work has been featured in the Student Illustrators Conference in Texas and KYOU Student Publications. Her other work can be found around Lawrence in bookstores, concert venues, and libraries. Mia is inspired by her time working in hospice and homelessness projects, as well as taking care of all the children and animals in her life.

You can find Mia’s exhibit in the Upper West Gallery of the Phoenix Gallery.
