Partnerships can be a powerful way to grow, expand reach, create mentorships and value for our young artists. These artistic partners align with our organization's mission, vision, and values. We are proud to introduce them and continue to bring on more talented artists.

Aimee Lee is an artist who makes paper, writes, and advocates for Korean papermaking practices in the U.S. (BA, Oberlin College; MFA, Columbia College Chicago). Her initial Fulbright research helped her build the first hanji studio in North America and write her award-winning book, Hanji Unfurled.

 

She exhibits and is collected internationally; her work has shown at the Fuller Craft Museum, Islip Art Museum, Museum of Nebraska Art, Allen Memorial Art Museum, and the Korean Cultural Centers of the Korean Embassy in D.C. and Korean Consulate in NYC. Library collections that hold her work include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, Stanford University, UCLA, and Yale University.

She travels the world to teach and serves her regional community as an Ohio Arts Council Heritage Fellow, teaching papermaking and book arts at Oberlin College during their Winter Term. Funders include the US Fulbright Program, Korea Fulbright Foundation, John Anson Kittredge Fund, American Folklore Society, Center for Craft, Oak Spring Garden Foundation, and SPACES.

Her second Fulbright award as a senior scholar focused on further research of Korean papermaking tools, and continued her training since 2009 with various national and provincial Intangible Cultural Property Holders. She also trains the next generation of papermakers in the Korean tradition from the Korean diaspora and beyond at her dedicated hanji studio in South Euclid, Ohio.

My passage through art making travels through many forms, from music and performance to books and paper. While the heart of my practice meets the intersection of handmade paper and Korean lineage, strong arterial lines flow into fiber art, artists’ books, and installation. - Aimee Lee

Artist: Meera Ramanathan

I am a visual art educator and teach students UTK to 5th grade. I have a Master’s degree in History of Fine Arts, drawing, and painting from India and a Single Subject Teaching Credential in Visual Art from San Diego State University. I also have 9 years of experience working in an early childhood setting.

In 2022, I was awarded the Outstanding Elementary Visual Art Educator award by the California Art Education Association and my art program was awarded the Exemplary Program status.

I grew up in Chennai, India, and visual art had always been an important part of my life! I would often find myself creating clothes for my dolls out of fabric scraps using a needle and yarn at 6 years old or making handmade cards to give to family members using markers and crayons. My fondest memory is using okra to create prints on a piece of paper with paint that my parents displayed proudly for everyone to see at our home. This was a validating moment for me that established a strong sense of pride in what I made.

Artist: Sandra Silberzweig

Sandra Silberzweig is the creator of the Silbersenze™ Method. Her series includes guided art lessons for enhanced sensory stimulation and awareness through art. The technique is based on her own, evolving artistic experiences and journey of self-healing. The Silbersenze™ Method will encourage expression of the intuitive, inner artist without fear of expectations. The artist can create in a secret code that only they can decipher as they move through the process. It helps students identify their feelings and emotions when engaging with the instructions, tools and prompts. Once students translate their thoughts and transfer them onto a personalized self-reflective painting, they will have a ‘perfectly imperfect’ masterpiece that is unique to them!

Internationally renowned artist, Sandra Silberzweig has teamed up with MoxieBox Art to share her magical method for the first time, ever. Sandra's art has inspired lessons in thousands of classrooms around the globe but, until now, her tips, tricks and techniques have never been revealed. This unique method teaches the student to visually express and understand their intuitive thoughts and feelings.
