Paloma Barhaugh-Bordas is a visual artist living and working in Richmond, VA. Originally from Denver, Colorado, she received a BA in liberal arts from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. Her interest in printmaking led to an internship at Kala Art Insti- tute in Berkeley, California where she became an Artist in Resi- dence and instructor. Before moving to Richmond in August of 2013 to teach at Virginia Commonwealth University, Paloma was a Dean’s Scholar at the Rhode Island School of Design in Provi- dence, RI where she earned an MFA in Printmaking. Her work adapts and appropriates the vernacular of the many regions she’s called home and traces the self-conscious search for cultural roots as a first-generation American.
