About Kristen

I am an American/Portuguese multimedia artist based in Rome, Italy. My work has been exhibited internationally and online and has won a number of awards. I have taught undergraduate and graduate college students for over thirteen years, as well as offered art and multimedia courses in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. I’m currently a tenured Associate Professor of Digital Media and the Director of the Film and Digital Media Program at The American University of Rome. I have also taught in the United States in the Art Department at William Paterson University (Wayne, NJ.) as well as in the Digital Arts Department at Pratt Institute (Brooklyn, NY.).

I work on animation, video, graphic design, illustration, web and interactive projects independently, as well as for clients and non-profit organizations. The vast majority of the work that I do is to promote positive social change. Some of my most recent works have dealt with poverty reduction, child welfare issues, education, animal rights, respect for the elderly and ending world hunger.
