Mae Ross is a queer/trans Oakland-based multi-disciplinary artist with a focus on printmaking, digital art, and graphic design. She has also made a name for herself as a music producer/DJ in the local Bay Area under the pseudonym Technopagan.
Mae strives to push the boundaries of the relationship between the digital and material world. Her main design tool is Photoshop, which she has been using for over 9 years. She uses Photoshop to transfer her designs into the print world with a risograph, her print medium of choice. Mae comes from a family of photographers and has been taking photos since she was young. Lately, she is into older digital cameras, such as Y2K cameras, with absurdly small megapixels which has taught her a lot about technology from before her time. She is also the lead designer and editor of a full color 44 page magazine, Generaiderz. The magazine is focused on the local music scene and is in process of its second issue. Mae is currently pursuing an education in graphic and web design, and has been learning how to expand her skills in coding.
