Moving nine times throughout her childhood, Acadia Kandora was born in New Jersey, but didn’t stay there long. Growing up primarily in the DC metro area, constant change has given her an experimental drive to continue to create art that pushes traditional processes. Now a printmaker, Acadia started as a graphic designer who was interested in studio art. She funneled her design background into both sculpture and printmaking, and figured out how to combine the three mediums into one singular process. She has exhibited Nationally at shows like the Ink It juried exhibition in Germantown, MD, The Pushing Paper National Juried Exhibition in Indianapolis, IN, and the 29th National Drawing & Print Competitive Exhibition in Baltimore, MD.  Currently Acadia is an MFA candidate in printmaking and experimenting with new ways to make prints.
