Meet The Team
When I was 15, I co-founded Student Art Spaces to bridge the gap for underserved artists in Seattle. As the operational lead of SAS, I help coordinate this youth initiative across the nation. I am also a graphic designer for Space to Speak Org and an artist for Lithium Magazine. Learn more about me here!
I'm an emerging artist in the greater Seattle area, and a co-founder of Student Art Spaces. I'm currently a high school senior, and I'm looking forward to studying art in college as well! My work can be found on my website, alice-mao.com.
I got involved with Student Art Spaces in late 2019, and have worked hard to support the them in every way I can, making models and remaking the website for this amazing team. I also run my own game studio, Chiodo Studios, where I'm going to be publishing a long awaited project in the next few months.
My parents introduced me to many forms of art when I was young, and I quickly fell in love with playing the piano and painting, which I have been doing for over ten years. Beyond art, I have always been interested in the science of medicine and anatomy. I hope that someday I can merge my passions in these two fields to truly follow my dreams!
I help write grants and contribute ideas to Student Art Spaces to help make it a success!
