About Kirslyn Schell-Smith
Born, raised, and living in Virginia.
Currently an MFA candidate at Ithaca College, I live with my wife in a small town—which comes with its own difficulties being an interracial, lesbian couple. I help run the new SHENMoCA (Shenandoah Museum of Contemporary Art), with metro-NYC gallerist Rupert Ravens. I received my BA in studio art from Denison University. When not at SHENMoCA or caring for my four cats, I make art: photography, painting, and writing.
