Paloma Barhaugh-Bordas


Paloma Barhaugh-Bordas is a visual artist living and working in Richmond, VA. Originally from Denver, Colorado, she received a BA in liberal arts from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. Before moving to Richmond in August of 2013 to teach at VCU, Paloma was a Dean’s Scholar at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI where she earned an MFA in Printmaking. Her work adapts and appropriates the vernacular of the many regions she’s called home and traces the self-conscious search for cultural roots as a first-generation American.
