About the Artists for Nonnonsense Radio:

  • Lucas Franco is a sophomore Studio Arts major at the University of Pittsburgh who works primarily with photography. Born and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Lucas loves to experiment with different mediums, but always finds a way to incorporate his photography into his work when he can.
  • Caleb Kramer is an artist from the University of Pittsburgh. Caleb has experience with drawing, painting, sculpting, printmaking, and Non-Visual/Visual art. He loves to make art in all forms because it is relaxing and reduces his stress.
  • Caleb Lefever is an architectural studies major with a minor in studio arts. He will be graduating in April 2019 and plans to pursue a Masters of Architecture degree in fall 2020.
  • Brianna Mims is a Psychology and Studio Arts double major at the University of Pittsburgh. She actively seeks new materials and techniques to add to her art practice, but regardless of medium, Brianna looks to her knowledge of Psychology to complement her art making.
  • Shannon Spear grew up in rural Pennsylvania where she explored the land around her and consumed fantasy content in cartoons, books, and video games. This has led to themes of fantasy and nature appearing throughout her own work. Presently, Shannon is studying studio arts at the University of Pittsburgh where she is experimenting with a variety of different mediums.
  • Christina Hansen is preparing to enter her senior year as a part-time, non-traditional student at the University of Pittsburgh. She moved to Pennsylvania after earning her Associates of Arts degree from Palm Beach State College (Lake Worth, Florida) in 2001. She took several gap years to work and establish a life working at D.T. Mistick & Co./Church Restoration Group as an Art Restoration Associate until the company’s dissolution in 2016. With that loss, she was able to return to school to complete her Bachelors of Arts degree. She is focused on completing her History of Art and Architecture major and Studio Art minor in hopes of continuing on a path towards a career in an art conservation setting. She is currently a Studio Assistant in the Frick Fine Arts Digital Fabrication Studio where she explores digital fabrication techniques and processes as well as various material capabilities (which now include the non-visual). In her free-time she makes zines and artist books and is currently pursuing statuary-based provenance and conservation research.
  • Amanda Nichols is a recent Pitt graduate who studied psychology, neuroscience, and studio arts. She is interested in the integration of these disciplines in whatever form possible and mainly focuses on abstract and geometric drawing/painting
  • Emily Robinson is a third year art student at the University of Pittsburgh. She is a food artist and loves to incorporate food into her work any time possible. She likes to push the boundaries of in art with the use of food and incorporating the senses into her work.
