Bonnie Ferrill Roman (BFA summa 1993, University of Colorado, Denver; MFA-Sculpture, Fellow 1997, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities) is Adjunct Faculty, teaching Sculpture and Art in Culture classes.
Ms. Ferrill Roman has exhibited since 1992 in local, regional, and national exhibitions, including numerous solo shows. Her work is held in corporate and private collections, and garnered praise via awards and articles in books, magazines, and newspapers locally and nationally. Since 1997, she has taught Sculpture, 2D and 3D Design, Papermaking, Fiber Arts, and other classes at CU-Denver, Regis University, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, either as a Visiting Assistant Professor or in an adjunct/affiliate capacity.
A Colorado-based mixed-media sculptor, installation artist, and digital photo-collage artist, Ms. Ferrill Roman’s primary medium is cast and formed handmade paper, which she combines with fiber arts, natural objects, encaustic, pigment printing and light. Her artwork exhibits a contemporary aesthetic and resonates with layered meanings, evoking a visceral aesthetic experience. In addition to her solo work, she has collaborated with painters, sculptors, ceramic and glass artists, and digital artists. One collaborative project (created with Judy Gardner and Donna Gordon) hangs above an upper entrance to Claver Hall.
