Iana Quesnell

Having lived on both sides of the San Diego-Tijuana border, Quesnell’s incredibly detailed and large-scale drawings investigate cultural history and the migration within her family tree. Through the use of landmarks and cultural markers, Quesnell develops maps that tell the story of her family's movement. She uses a systematic approach in order to understand the impact movement and space have on identity. 

Quesnell is based in San Diego but lived in Tijuana for many years. She teaches at MiraCosta College. She has exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego; San Diego Museum of Art; and the Tijuana Cultural Center.
