Bunnie Reiss’ ability to live simultaneously in the past and present helps her to understand that one must celebrate the new in order to appreciate the old. Her days are often spent collecting and arranging to try and understand the relationship between the two. She tends to find the answers to many questions in free boxes or the stuff left on the side of the street.

Reiss lives and works in Oakland California and holds a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in English/Journalism from University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, Colorado and a MFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute in San Francisco, California.
