PLAYING WITH WORDS;
BUT NOT SO FRANTIC
I am an interrelated media artist that likes to explore the affections and implications of mediation. I am living in Bloomington, IN at the moment. I grew up in CT, studied for my minor of art history in Paris & got my BFA in graphic design at USF St Petersburg before starting my MFA in digital art at IU.
