Analee Fuentes, Faculty
2-D Studio Foundations instructor at LBCC since 1998
Personal Website: www.analeefuentes.com
Analee L. Fuentes received her B.F.A. in painting and drawing, with a minor in women's studies, from the University of Oregon and her M.F.A. in painting/drawing from the University of Arizona. Before joining the LBCC Art Department in 1998 she taught at Lane Community College, Western Oregon University, and the University of Arizona. From 2001 to 2004, Fuentes was an Oregon Chautauqua scholar. She has juried numerous regional shows and maintains an exhibit record spanning 25 years that documents her work as a vital Oregon artist.

Fuentes comes from a family of artists who instilled in her a solid appreciation of creativity. She is interested in issues that surround women and minority groups, especially as they affect our collective condition as human beings.

Her latest series, inspired by images from Aztec and Mayan mythology, are a new generation of icons held in the mind's eye of people growing up Mexican - wherever they grow up. The attitudes and content reflected in her work are based in the artist's own migration from the barrios of San Diego to the Pacific Northwest.
