Sasha de Koninck is an artist and researcher from Santa Monica, CA. She decided to leave the west coast and all of its wonderful weather to explore the city of Baltimore and the greater east coast to complete her undergraduate education at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She graduated in 2013 with a B.F.A. in fibers, a minor in creative writing and a concentration in sound art. The next leg of her journey led her to the Windy City, where she graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with an MFA in Fiber and Material Studies. She taught Sculpture, Conceptual Clothing, and Conscious Clothing at New Roads School. Currently, she is pursuing a PhD in Intermedia Art, Writing, and Performance at the University of Colorado Boulder, where she is advised by Laura Devendorf.
