My name is CNNNR, and I’m a visual artist. I use many mediums to channel my creativity; some examples are photography, videography, graphic design, VFX, and 3D. Although these mediums seem ultra-modern, my upbringing was actually pretty alternative and nature-centric. I grew up in rural Interior Alaska. We had a small cabin in Denali National Park without running water, surrounded by mountains and tundra.
Both of my parents were nomadic to their core, and it only took a few years of attempted settling down for us to pull up roots and leave Alaska for the road. My dad hitchhiked to Alaska from Iowa to escape the inevitability of the Midwest, and my mom left life in the Bronx behind for a great adventure. We traveled all over the U.S., and as I got older, I took on Europe. This instilled in me a feeling of security and comfort around a seemingly insecure and jarring experience. Learned values combined with an intrinsic draw towards nature granted me solace and fulfillment in exploring new and foreign ideas in my art and otherwise while representing my home state and its beauty.
