PrattMWP Student to watch Christina Sharp

Christina Sharp

Christina Sharp is an upstate New York, sassy, nerdy, and classy kind of gal. In high school she loved art (it was the only thing she excelled in besides baking) and discovered graphic design. She attended Pratt at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute for two years with a focus on illustration and communication design. There she learned of her love for type and illustration. She transferred to State University of New York at New Paltz and is now graduating in spring of 2013, with a hope of heading to Boston. When she isn't drawing, doodling, or doing fun design things, she is most likely in the middle of some sci-fi tv show, playing video games, making fudge, or baking cupcakes.
