Trina Badarak RESUME
I am a mixed media artist in Portland, Oregon. My paintings are contemporary and elegant, composed of small torn pieces of paper on linen. I like using antique ephemera because the old graphics take on a different meaning-sometimes amusing- when placed in a modern context. 

Book Art allows me to have a different voice. Using my hand pulled prints, drawings and ephemera, I especially like to include a narrative that is compelling.
