I offer a heartfelt thanks to my very supportive graduate committee who provided a delicate balance of guidance and freedom to explore as my heart directed. These guiding and sensitive mentors included Professor Joseph J. Kuszai, committee chair, Professor James Fagan, and Dr. William Charland all from the Department of Art & Art History, as well as Dr. Kenneth David from the Department of Anthropology. I owe a special debt of gratitude to Professor Michael Fanizza, former graphic design chair, who set me off on a mindbending journey of exploration before being called to his own.
