Meet the artist behind the workshops

Rizzhel Javier is a San Diego based artist and educator. She graduated college with a Master of Fine Arts in Studio Arts from San Diego State University in 2012. Rizzhel is an active member of the arts community in the region. Her work explores topics in communication, identity, memory and human relationships. Trained in darkroom photography, in the last ten years, Rizzhel has combined her images with sculpture, installation and digital media. Her pieces are playful and often require the viewer to engage physically with the work. She works autobiographically, using art and photography, to explore personal, community and global transformation. Through sharing personal stories, Rizzhel hopes to encourage viewers to recall their own memories, personal experiences and reflection. Check out Rizzhel’s People and Places Project, an exploration of identity, storytelling and community.
