heyo, my name is krystina riley. i was born and raised in arkansas. right after graduating high school, i started attending memphis college of art where i was pursuing painting. after a year and a half into school, mca announced that they were closing, so i took that as my motivation to leave. after taking a semester off of school, i finally decided to transfer to kansas city art institute to pursue graphic design.
the switch into graphic design has not been an easy process. i am not good at computers, because i am so used to using my hands to create things, but during my first year in design i have been challenging the rules of graphic design through my process of only using my hands.
