Servane Briand



A French native, Servane first came to California in 1985 before completing her business degree in New York. Since then, she has lived in San Francisco, Paris, and Palo Alto. She worked in various fields and made a radical move from high tech to printmaking and book arts in 2006. She studied both fields at Foothill College and the Pacific Art League.

Artist's Statement

Much of my work starts with a poem or a piece of writing that intrigues me. Then, I examine the interactions between writing and real life; this often generates more ideas and questions, which can be in sync or at odds with the original inspiration but are always a path to discovery. In my work, I constantly go back and forth between paper and digital. I like to explore the conversations that take place where these two worlds overlap.
