Ave Palguta creates work in fine metals and printmaking. She grew up in western pennsylvania and has had a desire to learn since she was a little girl. Her artistic process involves piecing together structures and compositions from music and life experiences. Picasso’s ability to capture the reality of a subject and also the essence of an idea has a large influence on her work. While she always has a hard time choosing which medium to express an idea, Ave’s favorite is fine metal. She will be graduating this May from Millersville University with a bachelor of the arts in graphic design and fine metals.
