Two Young Artists to Watch For

Two Young Artists to Watch For

Ziyan (Lisa) Tan’s “Basket of Life” (top) and Jessica Traugott’s “Unexpected.”

Earlier this month, the Creative Self-Expression contest honored two up-and-coming artists for their winning work. Sponsored by The Great Frame Up, a custom framing and art retailer, the two young artists each received a $2,000 scholarship from actress and artist Jane Seymour, spokeswoman for the Creative Self-Expression Foundation.

“The Creative Self-Expression Foundation’s goal is to provide high school artists with an opportunity to showcase their talent and express themselves through various mediums,” says Rebecca Hunsel, Marketing Manager for Franchise Concepts, Inc., the national franchiser for The Great Frame Up retail stores.

Georgia native Ziyan (Lisa) Tan received accolades for her oil on canvas, “Basket of Life,” which symbolizes the importance of bread throughout history. Tan hopes to attend Savannah College of Art and Design to study storyboard design and sequential art.

Jessica Traugott of North Carolina received equal praise for “Unexpected,” a colored pencil drawing which explores the topic of decay. This fall she will attend The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, to study entertainment design.
