Graphic Design Intern
I am a BFA graphic design student. I was born in Mexico, but moved to Fresno at a
young age. I am very thankful I did because I’ve met an array of different people
and learned so much about many different cultures. My hobbies include watching a lot
of television, traveling, and spending
time with my two dogs and cat.

Shawl Project Liaison Artist Intern
Fresno State graduate student Jamie Boley, a member of the Choctaw tribe, conceived The Shawl Project when the Center for Creativity and Arts announced its 2016-2017 theme, “Native Communities: Tradition and Innovation.” Boley wanted to share the tradition of shawl making with the Fresno State community. She has served as a liaison between the Center for Creativity and the Arts and Lakota elders in the Central Valley
Jamie Boley’s paintings and drawings are formally beautiful and raise thought-provoking questions about life, the environment, and the nature of painting itself. Her work is concerned with our changing landscape, the effects of drought and pollution, and the way these issues relate to the various aspects of her Native American heritage. In addition to teaching drawing classes at Fresno State, Jamie has taught children’s art classes for seven years, volunteering at Arts Visalia and working with Native American youth through a nonprofit program.
