Beiatrix Pedrasa is a 23-year-old multimedia artist and designer from New York City. She is currently working full-time as a Graphic Designer at Rockwell Group, where she executes a variety of projects ranging across print media, digital media, architectural rendering, environmental graphics, and product branding. Her skill set encompasses the Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office, traditional & digital illustration, video editing, brand identity, motion graphics, front-end web development, and social media. Additional work experience includes 2.5 years of technical & creative consulting at Groundworks Media Lab and 4 years of freelance graphic design and illustration for clients such as Yonder Window Theatre Company, Billboard Music Awards, TEDxUofM, The Duderstadt Center, and The Stamps School of Art & Design. She is a fiercely prolific creative whose passion is making captivating visuals.
Beiatrix graduated with honors from the Art & Design program at the University of Michigan (BA, Winter 2015), where she pursued a multidisciplinary curriculum concentrated around the intersection of art and technology. Her coursework includes Information Studies, Interface Design, Electronic Books, 3D Modeling and Animation, Elementary Programming Concepts (C++), Video Game Design, Animation: The Moving Image, and Time-Based Media. She also received a certification in Project Management during her senior year. Aside from attending classes, hitting the gym, and engaging in cultural & entertainment-focused extracurriculars, she worked both as a media consultant and freelance designer. Throughout her time at art school, she built a presence on Tumblr by sharing her sketches, animations, and comics, as she loves making work for fun and entertaining others.
Earlier in her career, Beiatrix solidified an interest in narrative-driven art in the summer of 2011, when she studied the Graphic Novel at Stanford University. She produced a short graphic novel, “Attract Mode,” which received a Random House Award for Creative Writing in 2012. She also showcased fine art for 6 years, beginning with her first exhibition at the MoMA in 2010, when her painting was accepted in a teen art exhibit. In 2013, she showed several paintings at the Greenpoint Gallery in Brooklyn, and from 2011-2015 contributed five sketchbooks to a permanent collection at the Brooklyn Art Library. At college, she showed graphic novels at the Work Gallery and Street Gallery in Ann Arbor, as well as a video in the UM Play Gallery. She directed and curated a video and multimedia art show, “SPACETIME CANVAS: a glorious cacophony of light and sound,” at the Warren Robbins Gallery in 2014.
Beiatrix lives and works in New York City. When she is not creating for clients, you can find her exploring new food places around the city, meandering through museums, skating at the ice rink, cuddling her beautiful dog Mango, reading on the subway, or drawing and painting for the sheer joy of it.
