Jylian Gustlin is a native Californian and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has been shaped by the technology explosion of Silicon Valley and her art reflects her in-depth knowledge of technology. She studied mathematics and computer science at San Jose State University and received a BFA from the Academy of Art in San Francisco where technology was emerging as an art medium. Merging her understanding of computers and her love for fine art, she became a graphics programmer and art director for Apple Inc. Jylian has been a fulltime visualartist for over 20 years and is represented around the world in galleries and museum.
`I know [Jylian] as exuberant, open, fun, funny, teasing, stubborn to the point of bullheadedness, and as a splendidly free spirit...and the viewer is the bene ciary of the whole package.' - Joan Baez
