Cynthia Krizo BIO:

Cynthia Krizo has just returned from a two year residence in Kauai,
Hawaii where she worked as the Graphics Manager with the Garden Island
Newspaper. A Native Ohioan, born in Ravenna 1979 she spent her summers
camping and hiking the Cuyahoga Valley, and her school days tucked away
inside an Art Room or Photolab with supplies and memories spread around
her. After finishing High School she went off to explore far away
places. During her travels she’s lived and studied the Visual Arts and
theater in the cities of Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, and
Portland Oregon. Cynthia has collaborated with various Production
Companies creating stills, puppets, costumes and performances for
characters such as the “Green Muse,” “Tempest” and the “Venus Fly-trap
Girl.” In 2006 she resided shortly in Kent and assisted Vince Packard
with the “Missing Animals Parade” (which took “Judges Choice” for the
Kent Bicentennial Parade) and “The Parade in the Circle” (held in
Cleveland every year.)
