Boriana Kantcheva, originally from Bulgaria, has lived and worked in the Boston area for over 18 years. She has received a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and an MFA from School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University joint degree program. She has worked as an assistant teacher at the Carpenter Center for Visual and Environmental Studies where she has received several Harvard University Certificates of Distinction in Teaching awards. She currently holds a position of a gallery coordinator at Chandler Gallery, Maud Morgan Arts Center. Boriana is a member of Bromfield Gallery and her work can also be seen at 13 Forest Gallery. For Community Supported Art, she would like to create a body of work that utilizes two print making processes- intaglio and screen-printing.

Printmaking has been a part of her artistic process for a number of years. She have used etching for its unique line quality and screen-printing for its bright, bold, flat color. This body of work will be a further exploration of ideas she has worked with in the last two years. Natural forms, seeds, rocks, the forest floor have provided inspiration. In addition, examining the complex relationships in different ecological systems have made Boriana aware even more of both the fragility and resilience of the natural world, of its diversity and its beauty.
