    Hi there,

    My name is Niusha. I saw Pieces in Katzen and filled a few responses. I really loved the piece. Are you an AU student or a visiting artist? I’d love to talk to you about how you conceived of it and see any of your other work. Let me know what you think.

      Hey Niusha,
      Forgive me for the delay in my response, I just had a baby and things have been a bit hectic. I am one of the MFA students at AU. I would be happy to meet sometime and answer any questions. Are you an art student? My email is mandylcooper@gmail.com. Thanks for your enthusiasm about my work- positive feedback is always encouraging! -Mandy
